Energy Department's Data Group the Latest Shutdown Victim

The nation's economic data has gone missing during the shutdown, and energy statistics are about to be the next casualty.

The Energy Information Administration announced Friday it will no longer release reports or data that are heavily relied upon in the industry, and its website will not be updated for the duration of the shutdown.

 

Respondents can still submit figures for collection, but they will not be processed until the agency's furloughed employees come back to work.

The agency's statistics cover production across a wide range of energy sources, including coal, petroluem, natural gas and electricity, and several renewable energy sources. It publishes daily reports and charts, as well as weekly price and production outlooks for a variety of national and international energy sources.
