I'm trying to find out where people get their historical data about US economy e.g. various stats, indicators and indexes. Many departments make their historical data available, also you can buy from Moody's Economy which has a comprehensive list. Any other sources YOU use and want to share?

Thank you!

I used publicly available resources to do a longitudinal study of the current account deficit and its relationship to economic indicators such as exchange rate, inflation et cetera.

I found these useful, but certainly there are more out there:

I usually get mine from the government. It's cheap and I don't have to worry about licensing issues -- i.e., I can ship a file off to a vendor if I need to.

Some examples: Census data, IRS data, FDIC data. I used a lot more economic time series when I was doing prepayment forecasting.
