BEA’s national economic statistics provide a comprehensive view of U.S. production, consumption, investment, exports and imports, and income and saving. These statistics are best known by summary measures such as gross domestic product (GDP), corporate profits, personal income and spending, and personal saving.
The international transactions accounts provide information on trade in goods and services (including the balance of payments and the balance of trade), investment income, and government and private financial flows. In addition, the accounts measure the value of U.S. international assets and liabilities and direct investment by multinational enterprises. BEA’s data on direct investment, the most detailed data set on the activities of multinational enterprises (MNEs) available, are used to assess the role these business enterprises play in the global economy.
The regional economic accounts tell us about the geographic distribution of U.S. economic activity and growth. The estimates of gross domestic product and personal income by state and local areas, and the accompanying detail, provide a consistent framework for analyzing and comparing individual state and local area economies.
The industry economic accounts, presented both in an input-output framework and as annual output by each industry, provide a detailed view of the interrelationships between U.S. producers and users and the contribution to production across industries. These accounts are used extensively by policymakers and businesses to understand industry interactions, productivity trends, and the changing structure of the U.S. economy.
