Annual GDP growth for the United States 1930-2020

This data begins after the Great Depression of 1929, and covers five major wars and several economic recessions. The years surrounding World War II show the greatest fluctuations, before growth rates become more consistent from the 1950s onwards. In 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic, real GDP growth rate in the U.S. dropped to it's lowest level since 1946; when looking at quarterly figures alone, a decrease of -31.4 percent was observed in the second quarter, which is the lowest quarterly figure ever recorded.
