125 State Personal Income: Revised Estimates for 1999-2001

  • The annual estimates of State personal income for 1999-2001 have been revised to incorporate the results of the recent annual revision of the NIPA's and newly available State-level source data. In general, the revisions were small and upward for all 3 years; in contrast, the NIPA estimate of personal income for 2001 had been revised down substantially. The difference primarily reflected the timing of the incorporation of Bureau of Labor Statistics tabulations of wages and salaries for 2001. In 2001, personal income grew the fastest in New Mexico, and it grew the slowest in Michigan.

1 Business Situation: Final Estimates for the Second Quarter of 2002

  • Real GDP slowed to a 1.3-percent increase in the second quarter of 2002, according to the "final" estimate, from a 5.0-percent increase in the first quarter; the "preliminary" estimate issued a month ago had shown a 1.1-percent increase. The primary contributor to the upward revision to GDP was an upward revision to exports of services. Corporate profits decreased $12.6 billion (1.6 percent at a quarterly rate) in the second quarter after decreasing $13.8 billion (1.7 percent) in the first.

39 U.S. International Transactions, Second Quarter 2002

  • The U.S. current-account deficit increased $17.5 billion, to $130.0 billion, in the second quarter of 2002. The increase was primarily accounted for by an increase in the deficit on goods, as imports increased more than exports. In the financial account, net recorded inflows decreased $7.2 billion, to $80.4 billion. Financial outflows for U.S.-owned assets abroad and financial inflows for foreign-owned assets in the United States both increased substantially, but the increase in financial outflows was larger.

67 U.S. International Services: Cross-Border Trade in 2001 and Sales Through Affiliates in 2000

  • In 2001, U.S. exports of private services decreased 4 percent, to $266.2 billion, and U.S. imports of private services decreased 5 percent, to $192.3 billion. The decreases in both exports and imports reflected the worldwide slowdown in economic growth and the effects of the terrorist attacks of September 11th. In 2000, the most recent year for which data are available, sales of private services abroad through foreign affiliates of U.S. companies increased 11 percent, to $392.8 billion, and sales of private services in the United States through U.S. affiliates of foreign companies increased 18 percent, to $346.7 billion. These increases reflected the strong worldwide economy in 2000 and the continued worldwide boom in merger and acquisition activity.
