New FAQs posted on BEA Web Site.

Several timely items have been recently posted on the "Frequently Asked Questions" feature on the BEA Web site, including the following:

* Where do government-sponsored enterprises, like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, appear in the GDP accounts?

* How do federal financial interventions, such as the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, affect the GDP accounts?

* What are the recent changes to the U.S. international services statistics?

* What are the sources of recent growth in U.S. exports of goods?

* Recently there have been differences in the GDP and gross domestic purchases indexes. Which one should you use?

Since the FAQ feature was launched in March 2006, it has become a valuable tool for BEA customers in need of quick answers about BEA's accounts.

It allows users to search for answers by category and keyword. It's also regularly updated with timely new questions. In addition, the feature allows customers to suggest questions for BEA staff to answer. The service is available at www.bea.gov by clicking on FAQ.
