Finding Economic Indicators
Posted by nlgiu on August 7, 2008
Here’s a site from the U.S. Census Bureau which is an excellent source for statistics on housing starts; new home sales; construction spending; total business sales; monthly retail sales; retail profits; the trade balance; manufacture shipments, inventories, orders; and the monthly wholesale trade, among other key indicators. Charts, times series data, annual percentage changes for each indicator, and a link to an “economic indicator calendar” of release dates for other categories of data are also included.
