Executive Summary

Based in Washington, D.C., the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) promotes a better understanding of the U.S. economy by providing the most timely, relevant, and accurate economic accounts data. BEA needed a flexible system to calculate the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) faster so that it could incorporate the latest data submissions from external sources while giving economists more time to analyze and validate results. BEA developed a solution using Microsoft SQL Server 2005 data management software, which makes it possible for the bureau to calculate GDP estimates 25 times faster.
