                               GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT:  FIRST QUARTER 2006 (FINAL)
                                 CORPORATE PROFITS:  FIRST QUARTER 2006 (FINAL)

	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 5.6 percent in the first quarter of 2006, 
according to final estimates released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.  In the fourth quarter, real 
GDP increased 1.7 percent. 

 	The GDP estimates released today are based on more complete source data than were available for 
the preliminary estimates issued last month.  In the preliminary estimates, the increase in real GDP was      
5.3 percent (see "Revisions" on page 3).

	The increase in real GDP in the first quarter primarily reflected positive contributions from 
personal consumption expenditures (PCE), exports, equipment and software, and federal government 
spending.  Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP, increased.

	The acceleration in real GDP growth in the first quarter primarily reflected an upturn in PCE for 
durable goods, an acceleration in exports, an upturn in federal government spending, and an acceleration 
in equipment and software that were partly offset by a downturn in private inventory investment.

                  Annual Revision of the National Income and Product Accounts

	The annual revision of the national income and product accounts, covering the first quarter of 
  2003 through the first quarter of 2006, will be released along with the ?advance? estimates of GDP for
  the second quarter of 2006 on July 28.  An article describing the revision will appear in the August
  2006 issue of the Survey of Current Business.  For more information, see the Technical Note.


FOOTNOTE.--Quarterly estimates are expressed at seasonally adjusted annual rates, unless otherwise
specified.  Quarter-to-quarter dollar changes are differences between these published estimates.  Percent 
changes are calculated from unrounded data and annualized.  "Real" estimates are in chained (2000)
dollars.  Prices indexes are chain-type measures.

                     This new release is available on BEA's Web site at www.bea.gov/bea/rels.htm.


        Final sales of computers contributed 0.05 percentage point to the first-quarter growth in real GDP
after contributing 0.33 percentage point to the fourth-quarter growth.  Motor vehicle output subtracted 
0.21 percentage point from the first-quarter growth in real GDP after subtracting 0.64 percentage point 
from the fourth-quarter growth.  

	The price index for gross domestic purchases, which measures prices paid by U.S. residents, 
increased 2.6 percent in the first quarter, 0.2 percentage point less than in the preliminary estimate; this 
index increased 3.7 percent in the fourth quarter.  Excluding food and energy prices, the price index for 
gross domestic purchases increased 3.0 percent in the first quarter, compared with an increase of 3.2 
percent in the fourth.  About 0.1 percentage point of the first-quarter increase in the index was accounted 
for by the pay raise for federal civilian and military personnel, which is treated as an increase in the 
price index of employee services purchased by the federal government.

	Real personal consumption expenditures increased 5.1 percent in the first quarter, compared with 
an increase of 0.9 percent in the fourth.  Real nonresidential fixed investment increased 14.2 percent, 
compared with an increase of 4.5 percent.  Nonresidential structures increased 12.5 percent, compared 
with an increase of 3.1 percent.  Equipment and software increased 14.8 percent, compared with an 
increase of 5.0 percent.  Real residential fixed investment increased 3.3 percent, compared with an 
increase of 2.8 percent.

	Real exports of goods and services increased 14.7 percent in the first quarter, compared with an 
increase of 5.1 percent in the fourth.  Real imports of goods and services increased 10.7 percent, 
compared with an increase of 12.1 percent.

	Real federal government consumption expenditures and gross investment increased 10.5 percent 
in the first quarter, in contrast to a decrease of 2.6 percent in the fourth.  National defense increased 9.6 
percent, in contrast to a decrease of 8.9 percent.  Nondefense increased 12.2 percent, compared with an 
increase of 11.7 percent.  Real state and local government consumption expenditures and gross 
investment increased 1.6 percent, compared with an increase of 0.2 percent.

	The real change in private inventories subtracted 0.24 percentage point from the first-quarter 
change in real GDP, after adding 1.89 percentage points to the fourth-quarter change.  Private businesses 
increased inventories $29.5 billion in the first quarter, following an increase of $37.9 billion in the 
fourth quarter and a decrease of $13.3 billion in the third.

	Real final sales of domestic product -- GDP less change in private inventories -- increased 5.9 
percent in the first quarter, in contrast to a decrease of 0.2 percent in the fourth.


Gross domestic purchases

	Real gross domestic purchases -- purchases by U.S. residents of goods and services wherever 
produced -- increased 5.5 percent in the first quarter, compared with an increase of 2.9 percent in the 
fourth. 


Gross national product

	Real gross national product -- the goods and services produced by the labor and property supplied 
by U.S. residents -- increased 6.2 percent in the first quarter, compared with an increase of 0.7 percent in 
the fourth.  GNP includes, and GDP excludes, net receipts of income from the rest of the world, which 
increased $14.9 billion in the first quarter after decreasing $25.6 billion in the fourth; in the first quarter, 
receipts increased $30.7 billion, and payments increased $15.8 billion.


Current-dollar GDP

	Current-dollar GDP -- the market value of the nation's output of goods and services -- increased 
8.9 percent, or $276.2 billion, in the first quarter to a level of $13,042.3 billion.  In the fourth quarter, 
current-dollar GDP increased 5.2 percent, or $160.4 billion.


Revisions

	The final estimate of the first-quarter increase in real GDP is 0.3 percentage point, or $8.9 billion, 
higher than the preliminary estimate issued last month.  The upward revision to the percent change in 
real GDP primarily reflected a downward revision to imports.

                                           Corporate Profits

	Profits from current production (corporate profits with inventory valuation and capital 
consumption adjustments) increased $176.7 billion in the first quarter, according to revised estimates.  
In the fourth quarter, profits increased $185.8 billion.  Current-production cash flow (net cash flow with 
inventory valuation and capital consumption adjustments) -- the internal funds available to corporations 
for investment -- increased $136.3 billion in the first quarter, compared with an increase of $43.1 billion 
in the fourth.

        Fourth-quarter profits from current production were reduced by $22.9 billion because of
Hurricane Wilma, reflecting the net benefits paid by domestic insurance companies and the uninsured 
losses of corporate property.

	Taxes on corporate income increased $30.6 billion in the first quarter, compared with an increase 
of $56.8 billion in the fourth.  Profits after tax with inventory valuation and capital consumption 
adjustments increased $146.1 billion in the first quarter, compared with an increase of $129.0 billion in 
the fourth.  Dividends increased $13.4 billion, compared with an increase of $15.3 billion; current-
production undistributed profits increased $132.6 billion, compared with an increase of $113.8 billion.

	Domestic profits of financial corporations increased $63.5 billion in the first quarter, compared 
with an increase of $104.9 billion in the fourth.  Domestic profits of nonfinancial corporations increased 
$83.2 billion in the first quarter, compared with an increase of $95.5 billion in the fourth.  In the first 
quarter, real gross corporate value added increased, reflecting an increase in unit prices, a decrease in 
unit labor costs, and no change in unit nonlabor costs.

	The rest-of-the-world component of profits increased $30.1 billion in the first quarter, in contrast 
to a decrease of $14.5 billion in the fourth.  This measure is calculated as (1) receipts by U.S. residents 
of earnings from their foreign affiliates plus dividends received by U.S. residents from unaffiliated 
foreign corporations minus (2) payments by U.S. affiliates of earnings to their foreign parents plus 
dividends paid by U.S. corporations to unaffiliated foreign residents.  The first-quarter increase was 
accounted for by an increase in receipts and a decrease in payments.

	Profits before tax with inventory valuation adjustment is the best available measure of industry 
profits because estimates of the capital consumption adjustment by industry do not exist.  This measure 
reflects depreciation-accounting practices used for federal income tax returns.  According to this 
measure, domestic profits of financial and nonfinancial corporations increased.  The increase in  
nonfinancial corporations reflected increases in all the industries shown except retail trade, petroleum 
manufacturing, and wholesale trade.   

	Profits before tax increased $137.7 billion in the first quarter, compared with an increase of 
$177.5 billion in the fourth.  The before-tax measure of profits does not reflect, as does profits from 
current production, the capital consumption and inventory valuation adjustments.  These adjustments 
convert depreciation of fixed assets and inventory withdrawals reported on a tax-return, historical-cost 
basis to the current-cost measures used in the national income and product accounts.  The capital 
consumption adjustment increased $19.4 billion in the first quarter (from -$50.7 billion to -$31.3 
billion), compared with an increase of $21.4 billion in the fourth.  The inventory valuation adjustment 
increased $19.4 billion (from -$40.4 billion to -$21.0 billion), in contrast to a decrease of $12.9 billion.

  Note.--Users are cautioned that particularly for components that
exhibit rapid change in prices relative to other prices in the
economy, the chained-dollar estimates should not be used to measure
the component's relative importance or its contribution to the
growth rate of more aggregate series.  For accurate estimates of
the contributions to percent changes in real GDP, use table 2.

  1. This index is a supplemental measure that is based on household
expenditures for which there are observable price measures.  It
excludes most implicit prices (for example, the services furnished
without payment by financial intermediaries) and the expenses of
nonprofit institutions.  Percentage changes for these series are
included in the addenda to table 8 and appendix table A.

  1. The current-dollar gross value added is deflated using the
gross value added chain-type price index for nonfinancial industries
from the GDP-by-industry accounts.  For periods when this price index
is not available, the chain-type price index for GDP goods and
structures is used.
  2. Chained-dollar consumption of fixed capital of nonfinancial
corporate business is calculated as the product of the chain-type
quantity index and the 2000 current-dollar value of the corresponding
series, divided by 100.
  3. Chained-dollar net value added of nonfinancial corporate
business is the difference between the gross value added and the
consumption of fixed capital.
  4. The deflator for gross value added of nonfinancial corporate
business divided by 100.

     Explanatory Note: NIPA Measures of Quantities and Prices


     Current-dollar GDP is a measure of the market value of goods, services, and structures produced in
the economy in a particular period.  Changes in current-dollar GDP can be decomposed into quantity and
price components.  Quantities, or "real" measures, and prices are expressed as index numbers with the
reference year -- at present, the year 2000 -- equal to 100. 

     Annual changes in quantities and prices are calculated using a Fisher formula that incorporates
weights from two adjacent years.  (Quarterly changes in quantities and prices are calculated using a
Fisher formula that incorporates weights from two adjacent quarters; quarterly indexes are adjusted for
consistency to the annual indexes before percent changes are calculated.)  For example, the 2003-04
annual percent change in real GDP uses prices for 2003 and 2004 as weights, and the 2003-04 annual
percent change in GDP prices uses quantities for 2003 and 2004 as weights.  These annual changes are
"chained" (multiplied) together to form time series of quantity and price indexes.  Percent changes in
Fisher indexes are not affected by the choice of reference year.  (BEA also publishes a measure of the
price level known as the implicit price deflator (IPD), which is calculated as the ratio of the
current-dollar value to the corresponding chained-dollar value, multiplied by 100.  The values of the IPD
are very close to the values of the corresponding "chain-type" price index.)

     Index numbers of quantity and price indexes for GDP and its major components are presented in this
release in tables 5 and 6. Percent changes from the preceding period are presented in tables 1, 4, 7, and 8.
Contributions by major components to changes in real GDP are presented in table 2.  

     Measures of real GDP and its major components are also presented in dollar-denominated form,
designated "chained (2000) dollar estimates."  For most series, these estimates, which are presented in
table 3, are computed by multiplying the current-dollar value in 2000 by a corresponding quantity index
number and then dividing by 100.  For example, if a current-dollar GDP component equaled $100 in
2000 and if real output for this component increased 10 percent in 2001, then the chained (2000) dollar
value of this component in 2001 would be $110 (= $100 x 110 / 100). Percent changes calculated from
chained-dollar estimates and from chain-type quantity indexes are the same; any differences will be small
and due to rounding.  

     Chained-dollar values for the detailed GDP components will not necessarily sum to the chained-dollar
estimate of GDP (or to any intermediate aggregate). This is because the relative prices used as weights
for any period other than the reference year differ from those of the reference year. A measure of the
extent of such differences is provided by a "residual" line, which indicates the difference between GDP
(or other major aggregate) and the sum of the most detailed components in the table.  For periods close to
the reference year, when there usually has not been much change in the relative prices that are used as
weights, the residuals tend to be small, and the chained-dollar estimates can be used to approximate the
contributions to growth and to aggregate the detailed estimates.  For periods further from the reference
year, the residuals tend to be larger, and the chained-dollar estimates are less useful for analyses of
contributions to growth.  Thus, the contributions to percent change shown in table 2 provide a better
measure of the composition of GDP growth.  In particular, for components for which relative prices are
changing rapidly, calculation of contributions using chained-dollar estimates may be misleading even just
a few years from the reference year.
