In an effort to get my feet wet with d3, R, and data science in general, here is a basic data visualization. The idea here is to compare federal budgets over time, for prisons vs. schools. It’s actually more general than that. The lines below are:

  • Education, Training, Employment, and Social Services
  • Administration of Justice

In future posts I will delve into interactive visualizations and also try and narrow the data down.
