BITE-SIZE SESSION: Since the emergence of COVID-19, dramatic and fast-moving changes to the U.S. economy have increased the need for more frequent and timely economic data. In response, BEA is using daily payment card data, such as credit card data, to measure the effects of the pandemic on spending. Updates are posted approximately once a week. Additionally, BEA is also producing special data tables and other materials that make it easier to see how pandemic relief payments and programs show up in BEA’s statistics, including national and state gross domestic product (GDP) and personal income data.

Learn how to use these new data tools to inform your reporting or ask Thomas and Jeannine your questions about any of BEA’s data products.

This conference was made possible by our sponsors: Associated Press, Arizent, Bloomberg, Bureau of Economic Analysis, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Business Wire, CNBC, Hilton, Investopedia, NEFE, NPR, Missouri School of Journalism, Quartz, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the Walter and Karla Goldschmidt Foundation.
