Gross Domestic Product (GDP) Second Estimate Released Today for Q3 2012

The second estimate of real, U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for the third quarter of 2012 was released this morning:

Predicted: +2.8%
Actual: +2.7%

The above percentages represent the quarter-to-quarter change in the Gross Domestic Product for the United States. The "predicted" figure is what economists and Wall Street forecasters were expecting, while the "actual" is the actual or real figure. The GDP report is produced by the U.S. Commerce Department's Bureau of Economic Analysis.

The final GDP report for Q3 2012, which will contain the most authoritative data for the third quarter, will be released on December 20, 2012.

The GDP is a very broad measure of economic activity for the entire United States, covering all sectors of the economy. The Commerce Department defines real GDP as, "the output of goods and services produced by labor and property located in the United States."
