STAT-USA Data Sources

Information on the sources of data in the STAT-USA database

Background Information

The STAT-USA Office has ceased operation as of September 30, 2010. The STAT-USA database included the State of the Nation and the National Trade Data Bank (NTDB) resources.

For more than 25 years, the Office of the U.S. Department of Commerce through the STAT-USA database provided the business community with one place to go to access an extensive collection of U.S. economic and finance data, international trade statistics, and market research reports. Divided into two main areas, State of the Nation (SotN) tracked the U.S. economy while GLOBUS & NTDB provided internatiional coverage with country and market research reports.

Listed here are the source pages and/or agency pages where the STAT-USA files originated.
