99 State Personal Income, Revised Estimates for 1998-2000 (PDF)

The annual estimates of State personal income for 1998-2000 have been revised to incorporate the results of the recent annual revision of the national income and product accounts, as well as newly available State-level source data. In 2000, personal income grew the fastest in Massachusetts and grew the slowest in Louisiana. Over the expansion period 1992-2000, personal income grew the fastest in Nevada and grew the slowest in Hawaii.

Real GDP edged up 0.3 percent in the second quarter of 2001, according to the "final" estimate; the "preliminary" estimate issued last month had shown a 0.2-percent increase. The largest revision was a downward revision to imports of services, which are subtracted in the calculation of GDP. The "revised" estimate of corporate profits showed a decrease of $30.0 billion (3.8 percent at a quarterly rate); the "preliminary" estimate had shown a decrease of $28.5 billion (3.6 percent).


65 U.S. International Transactions, Second Quarter 2001 (PDF)

The U.S. current-account deficit decreased $5.3 billion, to $106.5 billion, in the second quarter of 2001. A decrease in the deficit on goods and an increase in the surplus on services more than offset increases in the deficit on income and in net outflows for unilateral current transfers. In the financial account, net recorded inflows increased $21.2 billion, to $124.7 billion, as financial inflows decreased less than financial outflows.
