There are some government sources online that focus more on historical statistics. The St. Louis Fed's Archival FRED (ALFRED) database "allows you to retrieve vintage versions of economic data that were available on specific dates in history" aka not revised as more accurate estimates became available. If one wants to go back further historically, the St. Louis Fed also offers the FRASER database, which has unrevised data publications back as far as the 1920s in some cases. Please bear in mind that historical data online may be limited and this type of research might require you to consult printed, and/or microform materials.

If you would like further assistance with your research, please contact the Business & Economics Librarian.
