Second Estimate: GDP Grew at 1.6% Rate in Second Quarter

Real gross domestic product - the output of goods and services produced by labor and property in the U.S. - increased at an annual rate of 1.6 percent in the second quarter of 2010 (that is, from the first quarter to the second quarter), according to the "second" estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.  In the first quarter, real GDP increased 3.7 percent.

The GDP estimates released today are based on more complete source data than were available for the advance estimate issued last month.  In the advance estimate, the increase in real GDP was 2.4 percent.

The increase in real GDP in the second quarter primarily reflected positive contributions from nonresidential fixed investment, personal consumption expenditures, exports, federal government spending, private inventory investment, and residential fixed investment.  Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP, increased.

The deceleration in real GDP in the second quarter primarily reflected a sharp acceleration in imports and a sharp deceleration in private inventory investment that were partly offset by an upturn in residential fixed investment, an acceleration in nonresidential fixed investment, an upturn in state and local government spending, and an acceleration in federal government spending.
