Economic Indicator Links
These sites are where you need to go to find the unemployment rate, consumer price index (CPI), number of housing starts, what people are spending, retail sales, and so on.
Well, you can get deeper. Read the agency name below to get an idea of what to expect there (labor statistics have such data as income, employment, etc...)
Bureau of Economic Analysis
Bureau of Labor Statistics
National Bureau of Economic Research's Economic Indicators (Awesome)
U.S. Census Bureau Economic Indicators (Also Awesome)
Fed Data on Money Flow and Supply
You can also use our handy database Economagic. But the above links will work just fine for most projects.
