Census Bureau launches “America’s Economy” App
If you have an Android phone and would like to the have latest U.S. economic indicators at your fingertips, you might want to download the U.S. Census Bureau’s new mobile app “America’s Economy.” The app includes data from not only the Census Bureau, but the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (think GDP, personal income, and trade balances), the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (think job growth, consumer price index, and the unemployment rate.
The America's Economy app is available from Googleplay. Of course, I’ve downloaded it. It’s great for checking the most widely-used U.S. economic indicators on the go. An app for iphones will also be available soon. For more information, click here or just head on over to www.census.gov.
