This graph shows the development of the Gross Domestic Product of the United States of America from 1990 to 2012 in annual numbers. Gross domestic product (GDP) refers to the market value of all final goods and services produced within a country in a given period. The GDP increased to about 15.7 trillion U.S. dollars in 2012, which correspondends to an annual growth of the Real GDP of 2.2 percent. According to the BEA the deceleration in real GDP in 2011 primarily reflected downturns in private inventory investment and in federal government spending and a deceleration in exports that were partly offset by a deceleration in imports and an acceleration in nonresidential fixed investment. The annual growth rate of the Real GDP can be found here.
