BC Budget Visualization

Vancouver media artist and education Jer Thorp has posted an excellent series of visualizations of the BC Budget announcements earlier this month.

He writes: "In the images above and below, we see the 114 items in the budget with expenditures of $1M or higher (bars represent money spent). Arts & Culture funding moves from the 57th highest expenditure at 19.5M in 2008/2009 to the 100th highest expenditure in 2009/2010 with less than 3.7M in funding. This is clearly a significant drop. Not only does Arts & Culture lose a lot of money, it loses much more money in comparison to other programs."

Thorp has also created a video through which to understand the visualizations.
