I. Abstract

As one of the Nation's leading statistical agencies, the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) provides reliable and consistent measures of economic activity that are essential to intelligent decisionmaking by business people and policymakers and to the efficient operation of financial markets. The purpose of the BEA Customer Satisfaction Survey is to obtain feedback from customers on the quality of BEA products and services. The information collected will assist BEA in improving the quality of its data products and its methods of data dissemination.

II. Method of Collection

The survey and a cover letter with instructions on how to complete it will be mailed to about 5,000 potential respondents; BEA will request that responses be returned 30 days after the mailing. The survey will also be posted on BEA's Web site for 2,000 potential respondents. It is designed to ensure anonymity for all respondents and therefore eliminates the necessity for recordkeeping of respondents.
