Virginia H. Mannering:  (202)   606-5304                                             BEA 07-06
Recorded message:       (202)   606-5306



                       GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT:  FOURTH QUARTER 2006 (PRELIMINARY)


	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 2.2 percent in the fourth quarter of 2006, 
according to preliminary estimates released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.  In the third quarter, 
real GDP increased 2.0 percent. 

 	The GDP estimates released today are based on more complete source data than were available for 
the advance estimates issued last month.  In the advance estimates, the increase in real GDP was 3.5 
percent (see "Revisions" on page 3).

	The increase in real GDP in the fourth quarter primarily reflected positive contributions from  
personal consumption expenditures (PCE), exports, state and local government spending, and federal 
government spending that were partly offset by negative contributions from private inventory 
investment and residential fixed investment.  Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP,
decreased.

	The small acceleration in real GDP growth in the fourth quarter primarily reflected a downturn in 
imports and accelerations in PCE, in exports, and in federal government spending that were partly offset 
by downturns in private inventory investment, in equipment and software, and in nonresidential 
structures.

	Final sales of computers contributed 0.23 percentage point to the fourth-quarter growth in real 
GDP after contributing 0.07 percentage point to the third-quarter growth.  Motor vehicle output 
subtracted 1.24 percentage points from the fourth-quarter growth in real GDP after contributing 0.76 
percentage point to the third-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 0.2 percent in the fourth quarter, 0.1 percentage point more than in the advance estimate; this 
index increased 2.2 percent in the third quarter.  Excluding food and energy prices, the price index for 
gross domestic purchases increased 2.4 percent in the fourth quarter, compared with 2.2 percent in the 
third.

	Real personal consumption expenditures increased 4.2 percent in the fourth quarter, compared 
with an increase of 2.8 percent in the third.  Real nonresidential fixed investment decreased 2.4 percent, 
in contrast to an increase of 10.0 percent.  Nonresidential structures decreased 0.8 percent, in contrast to 
an increase of 15.7 percent.  Equipment and software decreased 3.2 percent, in contrast to an increase of 
7.7 percent.  Real residential fixed investment decreased 19.1 percent, compared with a decrease of 18.7 
percent.

	Real exports of goods and services increased 10.5 percent in the fourth quarter, compared with an 
increase of 6.8 percent in the third.  Real imports of goods and services decreased 2.2 percent, in 
contrast to an increase of 5.6 percent.

	Real federal government consumption expenditures and gross investment increased 4.4 percent in 
the fourth quarter, compared with an increase of 1.3 percent in the third.  National defense increased 
12.3 percent, in contrast to a decrease of 1.2 percent.  Nondefense decreased 10.2 percent, in contrast to 
an increase of 6.5 percent.  Real state and local government consumption expenditures and gross 
investment increased 2.6 percent, compared with an increase of 1.9 percent.

	The real change in private inventories subtracted 1.35 percentage points from the fourth-quarter 
change in real GDP, after adding 0.06 percentage point to the third-quarter change.  Private businesses 
increased inventories $17.3 billion in the fourth quarter, following increases of $55.4 billion in the third 
quarter and $53.7 billion in the second.

	Real final sales of domestic product -- GDP less change in private inventories -- increased 3.6 
percent in the fourth quarter, compared with an increase of 1.9 percent in the third.


Gross domestic purchases

	Real gross domestic purchases -- purchases by U.S. residents of goods and services wherever 
produced -- increased 0.7 percent in the fourth quarter, compared with an increase of 2.0 percent in the 
third. 


Current-dollar GDP

	Current-dollar GDP -- the market value of the nation's output of goods and services -- increased 
3.9 percent, or $127.3 billion, in the fourth quarter to a level of $13,449.9 billion.  In the third quarter, 
current-dollar GDP increased 3.8 percent, or $125.3 billion.


Revisions

	The preliminary estimate of the fourth-quarter increase in real GDP is 1.3 percentage points, or 
$35.1 billion, lower than the advance estimate issued last month.  The downward revision to the percent 
change in real GDP primarily reflected downward revisions to private inventory investment and to 
personal consumption expenditures for goods, as well as an upward revision to imports of goods.

2006 GDP     

	Real GDP increased 3.3 percent in 2006 (that is, from the 2005 annual level to the 2006 annual 
level), compared with an increase of 3.2 percent in 2005.  

	The major contributors to the increase in real GDP in 2006 were personal consumption 
expenditures, exports, and equipment and software.  Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation 
of GDP, increased.

	The acceleration in real GDP primarily reflected an upturn in private inventory investment and 
accelerations in exports, in nonresidential structures, and in state and local government spending that 
were partly offset by a downturn in residential fixed investment. 

	The price index for gross domestic purchases increased 3.1 percent in 2006, compared with an 
increase of 3.5 percent in 2005.

	Current-dollar GDP increased 6.3 percent, or $788.8 billion, in 2006.  Current-dollar GDP  
increased 6.3 percent, or $743.3 billion, in 2005.

	During 2006 (that is, measured from the fourth quarter of 2005 to the fourth quarter of 2006), real 
GDP increased 3.1 percent, the same as during 2005.  The price index for gross domestic purchases 
increased 2.3 percent during 2006, compared with an increase of 3.6 percent during 2005.

  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 in appendix table A.
  See "Explanatory Note" at the end of the tables.

  r Revised
  1. Some components of final sales of computers include
computer parts.
  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.
