Public Economic Indicators site saved from shutdown

Economic Indicators.gov reports that the site will not be terminated as announced previously:

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economics and Statistics Administration (ESA) has decided to continue the economicindicators.gov website. Featuring the economic releases from ESA’s Census Bureau and Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), the site was started by this Administration in 2002 to give greater awareness to these economic statistics. ESA initially planned to discontinue the service due to cost concerns but given the feedback ESA received, the decision has been made to continue the site and improve its functionality.

The Economic Indicators site is merely a list of links to economic news releases from two federal agencies, the Census Bureau and the Bureau of Economic Analysis, but such cross-agency aggregation points are rare enough as it is. Perhaps they’ll add additional sources of economic news releases (such as the Federal Reserve and Bureau of Labor Statistics) in the future.
