User Guide

This document outlines the BEA data Application Programming Interface (API). Our Data API provides programmatic access to published economic statistics using industry-standard methods and procedures. The API includes methods for retrieving a subset of BEA statistical data, and meta-data that describes it. As additional datasets are added, the meta-data retrieval methods can be used to discover the current data accessible through the API.
