Gross Domestic Product for American Samoa
The estimates of GDP for American Samoa show that real GDP-GDP adjusted to remove price changes-decreased 2.4 percent in 2013 (see Table 1.3). In contrast, real GDP for the U.S. (excluding the territories) increased 2.2 percent in 2013. The decline in the American Samoa economy reflected a decrease in territorial government spending that was partly offset by increases in consumer spending and private fixed investment (see Table 1.4).
