In a time when government data is available but not always accessible USAFacts was created as an answer to a question:
where does our money go,
as a nation?
The Ballmer Group, the philanthropic organization led by Steve and Connie Ballmer, set out to accomplish this though a data repository and powerful data visualization tool called USAFacts.org.
We set out to make sense of government spending in a non-partisan and unbiased way.
