2016 Economic data

United States Economic Growth

The economy is expected to grow at a more moderate pace in 2022, due to a less favorable base effect. That said, activity should remain strong as upbeat household consumption and fiscal stimulus support domestic demand. Uncertainty over new Covid-19 variants and ongoing tense relations with China pose downside risks. FocusEconomics panelists see GDP growing 3.9% in 2022, which is down 0.1 percentage points from the previous month’s forecast. In 2023, our panel sees the economy expanding 2.5%.
