Interested in where your tax money goes? Just finished the first preview of an upcoming collection of visualizations on public paid slaries in Holland. This picture shows the public paid salaries, in case the salary is above the level of the salary of the prime minister (called Balkenende norm, naemd after former dutch prime minister). Each bubble represents a group of jobs with the same title. The size of the bubble corresponds to the aggregate 2008 salaries (x 1000 euro).

Medical specialist are definitely the one earning the most. Starting with the academic ones which have an aggregate salary of almost 90 million euro’s. Full interactive version of the visualization can be found on Many Eyes.

Within a couple of days more insights on how your tax is spent will appear.
