The Federal Reserve Bank of New York has created a series of interactive data visualizations that illustrate how New York City schools spend their budget. The data is broken down into several categories, such as spending per student, building services, and instructional spending, and it can be tracked by neighborhood and over time from 2004 to 2012. The Federal Reserve Bank created the visualizations to highlight the differences in spending across boroughs and make this information more accessible to policymakers, educators, and parents.
