Overview

Pew’s Subsidyscope Project, with assistance from its research and technology partner The Sunlight Foundation, completed its four-year effort to provide data and analysis to make federal government spending and subsidies more transparent in 2012.

The Work of the Subsidyscope Project

Subsidyscope presented  data and analysis on federal spending and subsidies across nine broad economic sectors, including agriculture; education; energy; health; housing; national defense; natural resources and environment; science, space, and technology; and transportation. Subsidyscope made this information more accessible to policy makers and the public by aggregating information from multiple government data sources, creating searchable data sets, and providing sector-specific analyses.
