Survey of Current Business will no longer publish PDF versions of select charts and tables, but the data will remain available online

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.
