Economic Policy Institute (EPI)

This organization "is a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank that seeks to broaden the public debate about strategies to achieve a prosperous and fair economy." Much of their work involves labor and work issues. They offer commentary on recent CPI, GDP, and unemployment releases. In addition, they have many analyses of current issues, briefing papers, and press releases. Their "Reading Between the Lines" analyzes economic articles in the popular press. Their "Data Zone" offers detailed data on "Wage and Compensation Trends," "Family Earnings and Income Trends," and "Prices" (many take some work to find elsewhere). The data is available in spreadsheet format.
