The Wall Street Journal has created several data visualizations illustrating which organizations received U.S. taxpayer-backed Paycheck Protection Program loans. The visualizations show that 86 percent of businesses received loans less than $150,000 and that California, New York, and Texas had the most firms receiving more than $1 million in loans. One visualization shows that businesses in the healthcare industry received a plurality of loans totaling more than $1 million.
