This graph shows the annual growth rate of the Real Gross Domestic Product of the United States from 1990 to 2012. The Gross domestic product (GDP) refers to the market value of all final goods and services produced within a country in a given period. The Real GDP is adjusted for price changes, as inflation or deflation and is chained to the U.S. dollar value of 2005. The Real GDP increased by 2.2 percent in 2012, which is a deceleration compared to the rate in 2010, which was 2.4 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 GDP in current U.S. dollars can be found here.
