BEA site

The Bureau of Economic Analysis provides ready access to an amazing amount of data.

It is the real “no spin zone.”

BEA home page

Things I found interesting were areas of real personal consumption and comparative values therein. State by state and metro by metro comparisons are interesting. Import/export data (drill down).

Things I find less valuable are the big swath stats like GDP, or even the components thereof. It’s not that I’m suspicious of the data, it’s just too hard to really look at the them without really drilling down.
