Government spending by department, 2011-12: get the data

Guardian Data's annual audit of UK government spending this year shows huge cuts taking place across supposedly protected areas of government as the austerity programme hits home. Public spending in 2011-12 was £694.89bn - compared to £689.63bn in 2010-11. That may look like an increase but once inflation is taken into account, it is a real-terms cut of 1.58%, or £10.8bn. However, that £10.8bn cut masks big drops in spending in over 40 government departments and quangos, including 'protected' areas such as health and education. We have identified 45 departments or non-departmental public bodies with cuts in spending - those groups have suffered £72bn cuts in real terms in a single year, equivalent to around 10% of annual spending.

Nearly half (49,000) of DC children live in these neighborhoods. Viewed another way, however, slightly more than half of DC children do not live in a high-asset neighborhood. Neighborhoods with the highest concentrations of assets (all six asset indicators) are in the Northwest quadrant of the city. Notably, two neighborhoods clusters have none of the institutional assets (libraries, grocery stores and recreation center) in the analysis. Who in Congress Supports SOPA and PIPA/PROTECT-IP?
