In addition to the decennial census, assessing the nation’s economic programs is the U.S. Census Bureau’s primary program commitment. These programs cover virtually every sector of the economy, feature unique industry and geographic statistics, and provide information that is critical for understanding the changing economic structure and performance of the United States and its territories. They yield data products from the economic census covering years ending in "2" and "7." Economic programs statistics are widely used by policy officials, economic analysts, business decision-makers, and the news media.

The 2007 Economic Census reports that nearly 2,500 gambling establishments in the United States generated over $26 billion in receipts and revenues.
