New Data: U.S. - As Reported
Wednesday, 26 Sep 2012 09:28 ET
By Karl Zandi
Summary
September 2012 -- The new As Reported databank stores the unrevised, first-published values of select major U.S. indicators (67 monthly, eight quarterly series, two weekly series).
Detail

The new "As Reported" databank contains initially-reported, unrevised values of major U.S. economic indicators.  Many economic indicators have a preliminary release and are later revised repeatedly as improved estimates become available, and standard Data Buffet policy is to update (overwrite) series with their latest published values. The "As Reported" databank supplements this to permit comparison of initial and improved estimates.

The dataset contains eight quarterly series (from as early as 2000Q1), 67 monthly series (from September 2002), and two weekly series (from 2 November 2002).  Figures are variously expressed as indexes, levels, level changes (difference), or percent changes.  Base units are number (#), nominal U.S. dollar ($) and chained U.S. dollar (Ch. $), with multipliers of thousand, million or billion (Ths., Mil., Bil.). Percent changes are month-over-month, quarter-over-quarter, or year-over-year (M/M, Q/Q, Y/Y).  Adjustments are unadjusted (NSA), seasonally adjusted (SA), or seasonally adjusted annual rate (SAAR).
