USAFacts Offers a Comprehensive Government Data Archive

According to The New York Times, former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer launched USAFacts, “a database and a report that he and a small army of economists, professors and other professionals have been assembling as part of a stealth start-up over the last three years. … The database is perhaps the first nonpartisan effort to create a fully integrated look at revenue and spending across federal, state and local governments.”

The article says the database provides data on a variety of topics, including how many police officers are employed in a given region (users can compare that number with crime rates), how much revenue parking tickets bring in, what percentage of Americans have diagnosed depression, how much money airports earn and spend, and what percentage of overall tax revenue is paid by corporations.
