facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailfacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
The United States operates at a trade deficit, which means that the US buys more goods from abroad than it sells. This is one of the contributing factors to the national debt. This visualization looks at the US Trade Deficit over the last 11 years by month. It shows the top 20 trading partners for both imports and exports. The countries along the top represent countries the United States sells goods to, and the money flowing into the US. The countries along the bottom are the ones that the United States buys goods from, and the money flowing out of the US. The dollar amount in the middle is the cumulative deficit over this period of time. This publicly available data was gathered from the US Census. (http://www.census.gov)

    • Hi Manuk, Thanks for your feedback! This is just demo code we built several years ago. We have some ideas for a new way to visualize this data that we will be working on at some point.
