Explore the Australian Federal Budget - Data Journalism
The Australian Financial Review's Budget Explorer helps both expert readers and readers with only a passing interest make sense of the Australian federal budget.
Our design approach builds on Ben Shneiderman's Information Seeking Mantra: overview first, zoom and filter details on demand. Providing content such as historical events and explanations helps readers understand the budget in its broader context.
Many thanks to data journalist Edmund Tadros and the team of journalists and researchers at the Australian Financial Review for all the hard work that went into this project!
