About BEA

The Bureau of Economic Analysis produces some of the world’s most closely watched economic statistics, including U.S. gross domestic product. BEA’s work provides a comprehensive picture of the U.S. economy and also informs Americans about state and local economies, U.S. industries, and the nation’s position in the world economy. As a federal statistical agency, BEA is nonpolitical, objective, and policy-neutral.
