Virginia H. Mannering:  (202)   606-5304                                       BEA 06-48
Recorded message:       (202)   606-5306


                  GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT: THIRD QUARTER 2006 (ADVANCE)

	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 1.6 percent in the third quarter of 2006, 
according to advance estimates released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.  In the second quarter, 
real GDP increased 2.6 percent. 

           The Bureau emphasized that the third-quarter "advance" estimates are based on source data that
are incomplete or subject to further revision by the source agency (see the box on page 3).  The third-
quarter "preliminary" estimates, based on more comprehensive data, will be released on November 29,
2006.

 	The increase in real GDP in the third quarter primarily reflected positive contributions from 
personal consumption expenditures (PCE), exports, equipment and software, nonresidential structures, 
and state and local government spending that were partly offset by a negative contribution from 
residential fixed investment.  Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP, increased.
	
	The deceleration in real GDP growth in the third quarter primarily reflected an acceleration in 
imports, a downturn in private inventory investment, a larger decrease in residential fixed investment, 
and decelerations in PCE for services and in state and local government spending that were partly offset 
by upturns in PCE for durable goods, in equipment and software, and in federal government spending.

	Final sales of computers contributed 0.10 percentage point to the third-quarter growth in real GDP 
after contributing 0.04 percentage point to the second-quarter growth.  Motor vehicle output contributed 
0.72 percentage point to the third-quarter growth in real GDP after subtracting 0.31 percentage point 
from the second-quarter growth.  



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 are annualized.  "Real" estimates are in chained (2000)
dollars.  Prices indexes are chain-type measures.

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


 
	The price index for gross domestic purchases, which measures prices paid by U.S. residents, 
increased 2.0 percent in the third quarter, compared with an increase of 4.0 percent in the second.  
Excluding food and energy prices, the price index for gross domestic purchases increased 1.9 percent    
in the third quarter, compared with 2.9 percent in the second. 

	Real personal consumption expenditures increased 3.1 percent in the third quarter, compared with 
an increase of 2.6 percent in the second.  Durable goods increased 8.4 percent, in contrast to a decrease 
of 0.1 percent.  Nondurable goods increased 1.6 percent, compared with an increase of 1.4 percent.  
Services expenditures increased 2.8 percent, compared with an increase of 3.7 percent.

          Real nonresidential fixed investment increased 8.6 percent in the third quarter, compared with an 
increase of 4.4 percent in the second.  Nonresidential structures increased 14.0 percent, compared with 
an increase of 20.3 percent.  Equipment and software increased 6.4 percent, in contrast to a decrease of 
1.4 percent.  Real residential fixed investment decreased 17.4 percent, compared with a decrease of 11.1 
percent.

	Real exports of goods and services increased 6.5 percent in the third quarter, compared with an 
increase of 6.2 percent in the second.  Real imports of goods and services increased 7.8 percent, 
compared with an increase of 1.4 percent.

	Real federal government consumption expenditures and gross investment increased 1.7 percent in 
the third quarter, in contrast to a decrease of 4.5 percent in the second.  National defense decreased 0.7 
percent, compared with a decrease of 2.0 percent.  Nondefense increased 6.9 percent, in contrast to a 
decrease of 9.3 percent.  Real state and local government consumption expenditures and gross 
investment increased 2.1 percent, compared with an increase of 4.0 percent.

	The real change in private inventories subtracted 0.10 percentage point from the third-quarter 
change in real GDP after adding 0.44 percentage point to the second-quarter change.  Private businesses 
increased inventories $50.7 billion in the third quarter, following increases of $53.7 billion in the second 
quarter and $41.2 billion in the first.

	Real final sales of domestic product -- GDP less change in private inventories -- increased 1.7 
percent in the third quarter, compared with an increase of 2.1 percent in the second.


Gross domestic purchases

	Real gross domestic purchases -- purchases by U.S. residents of goods and services wherever 
produced -- increased 2.1 percent in the third quarter, compared with an increase of 2.0 percent in the 
second. 


Disposition of personal income

	Current-dollar personal income increased $151.5 billion (5.7 percent) in the third quarter, 
compared with an increase of $179.6 billion (6.9 percent) in the second.  

 	Personal current taxes increased $5.5 billion in the third quarter, compared with an increase of 
$46.0 billion in the second.  

 	Disposable personal income increased $146.1 billion (6.3 percent) in the third quarter, compared 
with an increase of $133.6 billion (5.8 percent) in the second.  Real disposable personal income 
increased 3.7 percent, compared with an increase of 1.7 percent. 

	Personal outlays increased $138.2 billion (5.9 percent) in the third quarter, compared with an 
increase of $158.5 billion (6.9 percent) in the second.  Personal saving -- disposable personal income 
less personal outlays -- was a negative $46.8 billion in the third quarter, compared with a negative $54.6 
billion in the second.  The personal saving rate -- saving as a percentage of disposable personal income 
-- increased from a negative 0.6 percent in the second quarter to a negative 0.5 percent in the third.  
Saving from current income may be near zero or negative when outlays are financed by borrowing 
(including borrowing financed through credit cards or home equity loans), by selling investments or 
other assets, or by using savings from previous periods.  For more information, see the FAQs on 
?Personal Saving? on BEA?s Web site.  For a comparison of personal saving in BEA's national income 
and product accounts with personal saving in the Federal Reserve Board's flow of funds accounts and 
data on changes in net worth (which help finance consumption), go to 
http://www.bea.gov/bea/dn/nipaweb/Nipa-Frb.asp.


Current-dollar GDP

	Current-dollar GDP -- the market value of the nation's output of goods and services -- increased 
3.4 percent, or $111.0 billion, in the third quarter to a level of $13,308.3 billion.  In the second quarter, 
current-dollar GDP increased 5.9 percent, or $188.9 billion.

                    Next release -- November 29, 2006, at 8:30 A.M. EST for:
                    Gross Domestic Product:  Third Quarter 2006 (Preliminary)
                    Corporate Profits: Third Quarter 2006
				



                                    Comparisons of Revisions to GDP
                                                                         
   Quarterly estimates of GDP are released on the following schedule: "Advance" estimates, based on source data
that are incomplete or subject to further revision by the source agency, are released near the end of the first month
after the end of the quarter; as more detailed and more comprehensive data become available, "preliminary" and
"final" estimates are released near the end of the second and third months, respectively.  The "latest" estimates reflect
the results of both annual and comprehensive revisions.

   Annual revisions, which cover the quarters of the 3 most recent calendar years, are usually carried out each
summer and incorporate more comprehensive data including annual surveys.  Comprehensive (or benchmark) revisions
are carried out at about 5-year intervals and incorporate major periodic source data, as well as improvements in
concepts and methods that update the accounts to portray more accurately the evolving U.S. economy.

   The table below shows comparisons of the revisions between quarterly percent changes of current-dollar and
real GDP for the different vintages of the estimates.  From the advance estimate to the preliminary estimate (one
month later), the average revision to real GDP without regard to sign is 0.5 percentage point, while from the advance
estimate to the final estimate (two months later), it is 0.6 percentage point.  From the advance estimate to the latest
estimate, the average revision without regard to sign is 1.3 percentage points.  The average revision (with regard to
sign) from the advance estimate to the latest estimate is 0.4 percentage point, which is larger than the average
revisions from the advance estimate to the preliminary or to the final estimates.  The larger average revisions to the
latest estimate reflect the fact that comprehensive revisions include major improvements such as the introduction of
chain indexes and the capitalization of software.  The current quarterly estimates correctly indicate the direction of change of
real GDP 98 percent of the time, correctly indicate whether it is accelerating or decelerating 74 percent of the time,
and correctly indicate whether real GDP growth is above, near, or below trend growth more than three-fifths of the
time.

  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.

  2. Farm output less intermediate goods and services purchased.
  3. Consists of GDP less gross value added of farm, of
households and institutions, and of general government.
  4. 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.

     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 2004-05
annual percent change in real GDP uses prices for 2004 and 2005 as weights, and the 2004-05 annual
percent change in GDP prices uses quantities for 2004 and 2005 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.
