BEA Expert Meeting on Exploiting Commercial Data for Official Economic Statistics
November 19, 2015

As part of the portfolio of projects that are exploring the use of multiple data sources to improve federal statistics, CNSTAT convened an Expert Meeting on Exploiting Commercial Data for Official Economic Statistics for the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). This meeting built on the recommendation in the Department of Commerce strategic plan to “explore, research, and test the extent to which government and private data can be shared.” BEA asked CNSTAT to organize an expert meeting to explore the potential value added of (and obstacles to) using credit card company, retail sales, and other commercial information to improve the national income and product accounts. The BEA requirement for expert guidance in these areas fits into the Department’s broader visions for the use of big data to increase the quality of economic statistics, develop new statistical products, enhance the detail and timeliness of existing statistical products, and reduce costs and respondent burden. The presentations from this meeting can be found below.
