The National Priorities Project Database provides a dynamic, numbers and graphs comparison of federal and state spending from 1983 to today. Compare labor costs in Louisiana to military spending in Maine, or infectious disease spending in Idaho to hunger in Hawaii. For the political-thread MeFier in your life who has everything, but could use some actual data now and then.

See the FAQ for some of the quirks. Unfortunately the database doesn't adjust for inflation, but fortunately, this site does.

Data? You want to ruin perfectly good political discussions with data? Next, I suppose, you'll be expecting logic and coherence.

I know, I know, so much to ask. I was wondering why I got so few comments.
