Everyone is talking about the importance of data to our society as data improves all of our decisions: those we make as individuals, as businesses, as governments.
Government has been in the data business for quite some time, going back to the first Decennial Census in 1790. Since then, the U.S. Government has played a key role in providing valuable data to our country.

About the Economics & Statistics Administration
The Economics and Statistics Administration (ESA) plays three key roles within the Department of Commerce (DOC). ESA provides timely economic analysis, disseminates national economic indicators, and oversees the U.S. Census Bureau (Census) and the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). In this latter role, ESA works closely with the leadership at BEA and Census on high priority management, budget, employment, and risk management issues, integrating the work of these agencies with the priorities and requirements of the Department of Commerce and other government entities.
