census.data.commerce.gov | Last Updated 25 Mar 2015

Provides national level estimates on both noncapitalized and capitalized spending for information and communication technology (ICT) equipment and computer software by U.S. nonfarm businesses with employees for NAICS 2-digit and selected 3-digit industries. The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), Federal Reserve Board, Bureau of Labor Statistics and industry analysts use these data to evaluate future productivity and economic growth prospects. In addition, the proposed survey provides improved source data significant to the BEA's investment component of gross domestic product, estimates of capital stock and capital flow, and permits the reconciliation of important differences between reported production and consumption of technology.
