Where Does My Money Go? [wheredoesmymoneygo.org] is an interactive data visualization tool that allows users to explore UK's public spending patterns over the past 6 years using an array of maps, timelines and graphs. Relevant documents and datasets were scattered around numerous government websites as, in the UK, there is no equivalent to the US Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act, which requires official bodies to publish figures on spending in a single place.

Currently, the project is based on data retrieved from the HM Treasury, but the project is working to collect, aggregate and incorporate much more fine-grained information, including local spending. The graphs include trends surrounding areas such as Education, Health or Defence, which each can be further explored into more detail and over time as well as distributed over local regions.

mckeon: just turn on TV and you should see where US army is spending their 685 billion for 2010... and for your information, wheredoesmymoneygo.org is maintained by volunteers, not by the UK government.

All the numbers are also available in US so it is up to you to start the same website...
