Gross Domestic Product (GDP) up for the United States

The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) released third quarter information on the US's GDP. According to the press release the GDP went up by 3.9% in the third quarter. These are initial figures and may be revised later, but this is a small increase from the 3.8% increase in the second quarter.

Want to know more about the GDP? Check out the BEA's Primer on GDP. You can also examine the figures over time (some back to 1963) using the BEA's interactive tables.
