Under Secretary for Economic Affairs


The Under Secretary for Economic Affairs leads the Economics and Statistics Administration (ESA).

The Economics and Statistics Administration (ESA) provides timely economic analysis, disseminates national economic indicators, and serves as the administrator of the Department’s statistical programs through the U.S. Census Bureau (Census) and the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA).

ESA’s expert economists and analysts produce in-depth reports, fact sheets, and briefings on economic policy issues and current economic events.

The Department of Commerce and White House policymakers rely on these tools to inform economic policy decisions, as do American businesses, and state and local governments.
