The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) was established in 1971 in the Department of Commerce and succeeded the Office of Business Economics. Its mission is to "promote a better understanding of the U.S. economy by providing the most timely, relevant, and accurate economic accounts data in an objective and cost-effective manner."
BEA maintains data about GDP, prices, income, consumer spending, industries, international trade, employment, and other economic topics.
Federal Reserve Archival System for Economic Research has many historical statistical publications from BEA.
