The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) began publishing the Survey of Current Business in an online only format in February 2014 in response to declining usage of the printed version and budgetary pressures.
Going forward, BEA intends to make further changes to the online Survey. In August, BEA intends to stop publishing PDF versions of the charts and tables that typically appear in the “Charts, Tables and More” section.
Rest assured, these data remain available through BEA’s interactive data system, which allows users to customize and download the data in a variety of ways. In addition, BEA provides economic series as originally released in an online archive.

The monthly Survey of Current Business is BEA’s definitive source of information about its economic accounts. Articles in the Survey present the latest national, international, regional, and industry estimates; describe the methodologies used to prepare the estimates; provide information about major revisions; discuss on-going innovations; and generally keep users up to date on relevant BEA issues and initiatives. Each issue includes numerous tables and charts of various economic estimates. Each issue also includes a message from BEA’s director.
