Most US data won’t be released in government shutdown

WASHINGTON, April 7 (Reuters) – Most U.S. economic data
would not be released during a government shutdown if one
occurred, a U.S. official said on Thursday.

No data from the Commerce Department or from the Bureau of
Labor Statistics, which handles the closely watched monthly
employment report, would be released, the official said.

Analysts expect the Federal Reserve, which is not subject
to annual government funding allocations, would continue
releasing its data, including monthly numbers on industrial
production and weekly figures on the U.S. money supply.
