Census App

The Census Bureau now has its own app. It’s called America’s Economy and its bound to become a must have for politico wonks and econ wonks alike

I downloaded it this morning

According to this story by Carol Morello in The Washington Post, the app “provides updated statistics from the Census Bureau, the Bureau of Economic Analysis and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. It includes 16 monthly economic indicators, such as house sales, personal income, international trade, Gross Domestic Product and the unemployment rate.”

“The app is the latest step the census has taken to use the Internet more in both collecting and disseminating statistics. Last month, the White House cited the Census Bureau as an example of a federal agency that is “making great strides towards putting a solid foundation for a 21st Century digital government in place.”

America’s Economy is free and available for iPhones, iPads, and Android devices.
