Bureau of Labor Statistics
January 9, 1998
Economists and investors frequent the Bureau of Labor Statistics Web site for current information on the U.S. economy including a series of indicators that this agency, a part of the U.S. Department of Labor, releases each month. A good starting point is the "Economy at a Glance" page. Use this form to calculate inflation based on your own personalized "shopping basket." Compare what you make to the average annual pay by state and industry. You'll also find unemployment statstics from your state.
