Working at BEA
BEA's work makes a difference. BEA promotes 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. BEA produces key indicators such as the gross domestic product (GDP), personal income, and international transactions and investment estimates.
