New guidance on citing BEA information available.

Economists, researchers, students, and others have long used a wide range of statistics and other information from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) in their written work. As BEA's mission is to produce timely statistics that provide a more complete picture of the U.S. economy, the Bureau certainly encourages broad use of all of its statistics and other material.

To help people who wish to cite BEA information as part of their work, the agency has developed a concise online citation guide that offers specific guidance in citing the following:

* News releases

* The BEA blog

* Statistics from BEA's interactive data application


* The regional input-out modelling system (RIMS II)

* BEA's Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) feature

* BEA papers, working papers, and other BEA publications

The online guide offers a generic template for footnotes and endnotes in most cases as well as numerous examples. The guide also offers some hints and tips for people who wish to reference BEA material in online publications. In addition, the guide provides BEA logos in various sizes for online use.

The information published by BEA on its Web site and in its printed publications is in the public domain; it is not copyrighted material. Unless otherwise indicated, all information produced and distributed by BEA may be reproduced without specific permission.

The Bureau would like to remind all of its customers that as a federal entity, it does not endorse commercial products or services and asks that its information not be used in a way to create such an appearance.

The guide is available on the BEA Web site at about/BEAciting.htm.
