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 restructured tables and the note on how BEA aligns and augments source data from the U.S. Treasury Department for inclusion in the international transactions accounts will be released as soon as they are available. BEA expects the tables and the note to be released by the end of August. Data users who subscribe to e-mail notifications of releases of the international investment position or the U.S. international transactions accounts will receive a notification of this release.
