Atlanta Fed Raises 1Q GDP Forecast to 2.3 Percent
.

The growth rate of real gross domestic product (GDP) is a key indicator of economic activity, but the official estimate is released with a delay. Our GDPNow forecasting model provides a "nowcast" of the official estimate prior to its release by estimating GDP growth using a methodology similar to the one used by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis.

GDPNow is not an official forecast of the Atlanta Fed. Rather, it is best viewed as a running estimate of real GDP growth based on available data for the current measured quarter. There are no subjective adjustments made to GDPNow—the estimate is based solely on the mathematical results of the model.

Recent forecasts for the GDPNow model are available here. More extensive numerical details—including underlying source data, forecasts, and model parameters—are available as a separate spreadsheet. You can also view an archive of recent commentaries from GDPNow estimates.

Latest forecast: 2.3 percent — April 8, 2019

The GDPNow model estimate for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the first quarter of 2019 is 2.3 percent on April 8, up from 2.1 percent on April 2. After this morning's manufacturing report from the U.S. Census Bureau, the nowcast of the contribution of inventory investment to first-quarter real GDP growth increased from 0.15 percentage points to 0.24 percentage points.

The next GDPNow update is Wednesday, April 17. Please see the "Release Dates" tab below for a list of upcoming releases.
