Created by ex-Microsoft CEO Ballmer, can you draw real conclusions from this data?

Mr Ballmer has spent millions to make it easier to understand US government spending with his personal project But all this data is government data, some (or all) of which come with their own restrictions (i.e. unemployed people that are counted as unemployed are those actively looking for work - and don't include those who've given up searching.) Keeping that in mind, what are your thoughts on the objective usefulness of this system and the conclusions you can draw from it? Of course it isn't presenting the whole story, but from what it does present, how best can it be used if at all?
