If you’re hungry for raw economic statistics, the U.S. Census Bureau has launched its first mobile app.

The app is available for Android users now. Apple users will have to wait a few weeks.

The Census app promises info on 16 key economic indicators including; wholesale and retail trade, unemployment, construction and personal income.

The Census Bureau plans to unveil three apps for mobile phones and tablets over the next several weeks in an effort to give people “faster and easier access” to the government-collected statistics.
