From Slate, this chart shows the percent of workers furloughed, by agency.
"Hardest hit by the shutdown are NASA, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Education, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Securities and Exchange Commission. These agencies and others have basically gone on life support, with nine out of 10 employees furloughed, according to the Washington Post.
"The effect of the shutdown on the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense is comparatively slight, with only about one of every 20 workers furloughed in each.
"The Federal Reserve and the Postal Service will continue operating because they are self-funded agencies, and the State Department has the funding to operate normally and issue passports for a limited time."
The court system can apparently limp along for the next ten days or so.
