New Zealand Budget 2011 – Where’s My Taxes!

The 2011 New Zealand budget was released today. A brief break down of spending has been posted on news sites such as stuff and NZ Herald.

Headlines read “Budget shows ‘lack of vision’” and “Budget: Thousands affected by cuts” respectively.

While such articles do attempt to give a general break down of Government spending across the sectors, it is far from complete and does not provide the viewer with the opportunity of exploring the data and picking out patterns themselves.

Thankfully, a friend of mine has produced a clean and concise visualisation for doing such task.
