To meet the public’s evolving information needs, the Census Bureau’s Web Transformation Project has made our tablets and smartphones smarter with “America’s Economy.” This new tool provides real-time access to frequently quoted data from the Commerce Department’s Census Bureau and Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) and the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
The data series represented include the Commerce Department’s Advance Monthly Retail Sales, New Residential Construction, New Residential Sales, Construction Spending, International Trade, Advance Report on Durable Goods, Business Inventories, Manufacturers’ Goods, Monthly Wholesale Trade, Homeownership Rate, Quarterly Services Survey, and Quarterly Financial Reports on Retail Trade and Manufacturing. Also available are Gross Domestic Product and Personal Income and Outlays data from the BEA as well as Unemployment Rate data from the BLS.
Users of the “America’s Economy” app will be able to set up customized notifications when specified indicators are released and can add the release dates to their calendars.
Tap into “America’s Economy” on your Android or tablet today.
“America’s Economy” will be available for Apple devices later this summer. For more information, visit the Census Bureau.
