Around 45,000 economic indicators (mostly for the US, but also for more than a 100 other countries) 3.

Graphs to track economic indicators across many different time ranges (e.g. 1 year, 3 years, ...,40 years etc.) 5. Graphs that track the values of economic indicators across Democratic and Republican presidencies and across Recession periods over the past several decades. 6. All indicators updated soon after the govt numbers are published. (Most indicators updated monthly, others quarterly, annually, daily or weekly) 7. Help/Descriptions for many economic indicators. 8. Twitter support with the #cEconomy hashtag 9. Data-value transformations (graphs can be charted on interesting y-axis transformations (e.g. continuously compounded annual rate of change, natural log, change from previous year etc.) 10.

  • Love It

    By Bobdunit
    I have been using this app for 7 years now and look at it nearly everyday.
  • Need View by House of Representatives

    By Colora-deau Cowboy
    Nice app, but can be a little misleading for some statistics if viewed by party in control of presidency. Need a view to show which party held the House of Representatives ... a more reliable causal relationship for certain economic statistics.
  • Exuberant App

    By Dgahring
    Just missing a chart on margin debt of equities.
  • Informative...

    By Docarth
    Lots of interesting data not easily available elsewhere.
  • Like FRED but better

    As I said in title, like FRED but better... Worth the buy if you happen to be interested in macroeconomic trends and so forth. I was surprised by how well this app functions. Nice work, developers. Simple, clean app. Thanks
