Gross domestic product: Fourth Quarter 2006

01
Feb '07
Real gross domestic product -- the output of goods and services produced by labor and property located in the United States -- increased at an annual rate of 3.5 percent in the fourth quarter of 2006, according to advance estimates released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

In the third quarter, real GDP increased 2.0 percent. The increase in real GDP in the fourth quarter primarily reflected positive contributions from personal consumption expenditures (PCE), exports, state and local government spending, and federal government spending that were partly offset by negative contributions from residential fixed investment and private inventory investment. Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP, decreased.

The acceleration in real GDP growth in the fourth quarter primarily reflected a downturn in imports and accelerations in PCE for nondurable goods, in exports, in federal government spending, and in state and local government spending that were partly offset by downturns in private inventory investment and in equipment and software and a deceleration in nonresidential structures.

Real exports of goods and services increased 10.0 percent in the fourth quarter, compared with an increase of 6.8 percent in the third. Real imports of goods and services decreased 3.2 percent, in contrast to an increase of 5.6 percent.
