Annual Revision for 2009

Component ID: #ti1182473730

We release our Annual Revisions every year with April data in June. This year, like most, Census revised the prior year’s census basis goods and the last three years of seasonally adjusted and chain-weighted dollar data. The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) has gone a little further back with their services data and BOP adjustments; they are revised back to 1999.
