Yesterday’s release of an interactive tool for analyzing the military’s forces is one of many ways the agency is working to be transparent.
This spreadsheet provides the data that underlie CBO’s interactive force structure tool.
Today, CBO released An Update to the Economic Outlook: 2018 to 2028. The report presents the agency’s latest economic forecast, which includes projections of real (inflation-adjusted) gross domestic product (GDP) and other factors.
The report will include updates to CBO’s economic projections for the period from 2018 to 2028, but not updates to its baseline budget projections.
Expanding on its earlier long-term baseline projections, CBO shows how the federal budget and the economy would evolve under three scenarios in which laws would be changed to continue certain policies now in place, leading to higher debt.
CBO makes transparency a top priority, and has worked hard to explain its methods and release more data.
