EIA has developed a broad base of energy and energy-related data, the Public Use Energy Statistics Data Base (PUESDB). It is intended to be used as an aid in the analyses of energy issues by providing a quick means of locating and accessing both current and historical energy and energy related data. The data contained in the PUESDB is a consolidation of select time series extracted from various EIA and non-EIA publications. There are presently 800 time series in the system; the majority are from the EIA and have been extracted from the Annual Report to Congress, the Monthly Energy Review and the Petroleum Supply Monthly. Data are also extracted from the Monthly Petroleum Product Price Report, the U.S. Crude Oil, Natural Gas, Natural Gas Liquids Annual Report and the Performance Profiles of the Major Energy Producers. In addition, unpublished EIA data pertaining to acquisition costs, purchases and landed cost of crude oil are included. Non-EIA data measuring characteristics of end-use energy consumption (i.e., heating and cooling degree days, automobile efficiency and economic activity) are also included in the PUESDB. The information in this data base is organized in six sections: petroleum, natural gas, coal, electricity generation (utilities), energy indicators, and economic variables. The first four sections contain series that measure domestic resources, reserves, production, imports, exports, changes in stock levels, sales, and prices at various levels in the supply chain. Variables associated with end-use consumption are contained in the sections on energy indicators, and economic variables. Depending on the time series, the data are available monthly, quarterly, and/or annually. Coverage of the monthly data begins in January 1977, the quarterly data in the first quarter of 1975, and the annual data in 1950. The Public Use Energy Statistics Data Base is available on computer tape and is updated monthly.
