Interesting Observations

This demo uses data from Dataset 403 (Public Budget Database - Governmental receipts 1962-2015, Executive Office of the President), which shows the money received by two government accounts from 1962 to the present, as well as projected values through 2014. The two accounts ("government receipts") were selected and plotted side by side on a timeline. A number of observations can be found from the simple graphics
  • Personal income tax is much larger than Corporate income tax.
  • In the fiscal year 2008, there is a big drop of income tax on both.
  • starting from 2010, there is an optimistic projection that the tax income will grow in the future.
