USAFacts Relies on Zebra BI Visuals to Open US Government Financials to Public

April 17, USAFacts released a 10-k report on US government financial using Zebra BI Visuals for Power BI. The shareable reports will drive interactive storytelling and deeper understanding of complex data.


USAFacts is a fascinating project funded by Steve Ballmer, former CEO of Microsoft. The project's aim is to make vast amounts of US government data more open, accessible, transparent and easier to use. Engineers and researchers collected and organized 30 years’ worth of data from US Treasury Department, the Office of Management and Budget, the US Census Bureau, and the Federal Reserve. They then published it on a well-organized online hub that is neutral and focused on the thing that matters most – impartial data.

On US Tax Day, the initiative launched the 10-K report for the US government – in the US, 10-K is an annual report that gives a comprehensive summary of a company's financial performance. USAFacts did that for government data.

To make their findings better accessible to the public, they turned to Zebra BI visuals on Microsoft’s Power BI platform to create some of their interactive visualizations:

You can also click "Chart view" below to see all of the visualizations interactively:

Zebra BI visuals for Power BI are a perfect fit for a project like this. Not only does it include a host of crystal clear visualizations and features, (chart slider, small multiples and native support for IBCS), its design is completely responsive, so it can be accessed on mobile devices or desktops. It can also be embedded on other websites to drive engagement. All of this makes Zebra BI visuals for Power BI the best choice for data-driven storytelling that uses clear, easy-to-understand and attractive visuals for communicating insights.

You can also find out more in Microsoft’s Power BI team announcement.

We are proud that the USAFacts team, in partnership with the Microsoft Power BI data journalism program management, has chosen our Zebra BI visuals for Power BI to bring the US government financials closer to the public. In many ways, this is for us an essential confirmation that we have have done a good job with our latest product and that our solution is a great choice for presenting business and financial data in a clear and understandable way.

We are an avid supporter of open data. Data transparency and clarity of business communication are at the very core of Zebra BI’s beliefs. It’s what we stand and work for.

USAFacts is a noble initiative and we are looking forward to supporting more projects like this!

Andrej Lapajne,
CEO at Zebra BI
