Who is on the Dole: The Geography of Government Benefits

Kermit found this very elucidating interactive graphic at http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2012/02/12/us/entitlement-map.html?ref=us

It allows you to see a US map of where the total government benefits have been going. Furthermore, you can select Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Income Support, Veterans Benefits and Unemployment Insurance to see where those have been going.

It also allows you to see how it changes over time from 1969, 1979, 1989, 1999, and 2009.

Separate counties can be scrolled over to reveal a graph of their government benefits over time for that county.
