CURRENT ECONOMIC DATA AND LINKS
Over the years I have found that I cannot always remember the current value of a particular economic statistic.   This table was created to provide quick access to a variety of up-to-date statistics of interest to teachers of economics.   Students, news organizations, and specialists in other disciplines should find it of interest as well.   In addition, when it was feasible the links in the table were chosen so the user has access to time series or data for other areas and to related data.   Often you will have to follow the links or peruse a document or table to get to the particular statistic I have shown (this is a deliberate part of my design, i.e., part of the value added).   Follow the links and usually you will find additional useful and interesting information.
