Central banks and national statistics offices are often good sources. For the US specifically, https://fred.stlouisfed.org/ is quite comprehensive.

Check the following list of historical data sources. Good providers of historical economic data are MeasuringWorth, World Bank, FRED, Knoema or TradingEconomics.
