New map: stimulus spending

Posted in Maps, Politics at 5:23 pm by ducky

I made a new map of where the stimulus spending was forecast to go. I pulled the data from the White House Web site a few days ago, so note that it is for the proposed stimulus bill, not the bill as it passed. Also, it shows per capita amounts, using 2006 population figures from Wikipedia, so there will be a minor error due to the years being different.

I didn’t make a lot of noise about this one because I hope to do another, better one when the numbers are more stable.

    The map is 404. Also, http://maps.webfoot.com/demos/ has 404 links and PHP warnings. This web site is broken, I want my money back!

    I know, I know, asking the world for free, but does this compare with job losses? Fair overlay?

    Found my glasses. 😉

    Looks like the links from your demos page go to demos/demos.

    Knapjack — if you go to the map at http://maps.webfoot.com/demos/stimulus2009.html you’ll get all 50. Thanks for pointing out the demos/demos bug. Sigh. I am so fried from getting the 2004 data today that I was giving the stimulus map short shrift.

    Get me data for job losses, and I’ll be happy to put them up.

    I’m also looking for foreclosure information, BTW. I’ve found a few for-pay sites that give current foreclosure information, but they haven’t gotten back to me re archive data or redistribution of the data…
