They are often too granular for public consumption. We are also interested in understanding the sources provenance of data used to generate the statistics.  Some of this is straightforward for certain indicators, but for others it is more opaque.  It really depends on the program – CPI is complicated, whereas some of the other statistics are , such as the unemployment rate, are straightforward.  Productivity is even more complicated than CPI, so having an understanding of the process may be useful for some business analysts who use those numbers.
