Part of the Department of Commerce, the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) is charged with "promot[ing] 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" (citation).
The BEA tracks major national economic indicators, state and regional economic indicators, indicators by industry, and foreign trade and investment numbers.
A few important BEA tools and data services are described on this page.
