BEA Data Application Programming Interface (API)

Note to users: Our API is now hosted on a new subdomain: https://apps.bea.gov. API users must use this new subdomain to retrieve data.

What is it?

The data API provides programmatic access to BEA published economic statistics using industry-standard methods and procedures. BEA's data API includes methods for retrieving a subset of our statistical data and the meta-data that describes it.

The data API and its documentation are for programmers who are familiar with the concepts and techniques of retrieving data from Web Services.
