                               GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT:  FOURTH QUARTER 2006 (FINAL)
                                     CORPORATE PROFITS:  FOURTH QUARTER 2006   

	Real gross domestic product -- the output of goods and services produced by labor and property 
located in the United States -- increased at an annual rate of 2.5 percent in the fourth quarter of 2006, 
according to final estimates released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.  In the third quarter, real 
GDP increased 2.0 percent. 

 	The GDP estimates released today are based on more complete source data than were available for 
the preliminary estimates issued last month.  In the preliminary estimates, the increase in real GDP was      
2.2 percent (see "Revisions" on page 3).

	The increase in real GDP in the fourth quarter primarily reflected positive contributions from  
personal consumption expenditures (PCE), exports, state and local government spending, and federal 
government spending that were partly offset by negative contributions from residential fixed investment 
and private inventory investment.  Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP,
decreased.

	The small acceleration in real GDP growth in the fourth quarter primarily reflected a downturn in 
imports and accelerations in PCE, in exports, and in federal government spending that were partly offset 
by downturns in private inventory investment and in equipment and software and a deceleration in 
nonresidential structures.

	Final sales of computers contributed 0.22 percentage point to the fourth-quarter growth in real 
GDP after contributing 0.07 percentage point to the third-quarter growth.  Motor vehicle output 
subtracted 1.18 percentage points from the fourth-quarter growth in real GDP after contributing 0.76 
percentage point to the third-quarter growth.  




FOOTNOTE.--Quarterly estimates are expressed at seasonally adjusted annual rates, unless otherwise
specified.  Quarter-to-quarter dollar changes are differences between these published estimates.  Percent 
changes are calculated from unrounded data and are annualized.  "Real" estimates are in chained (2000)
dollars.  Prices indexes are chain-type measures.


                     This news release is available on BEA's Web site at www.bea.gov/bea/rels.htm.
	

	The price index for gross domestic purchases, which measures prices paid by U.S. residents, 
increased 0.2 percent in the fourth quarter, the same as in the preliminary estimate; this index increased 
2.2 percent in the third quarter.  Excluding food and energy prices, the price index for gross domestic 
purchases increased 2.4 percent in the fourth quarter, compared with an increase of 2.2 percent in the 
third. 

	Real personal consumption expenditures increased 4.2 percent in the fourth quarter, compared 
with an increase of 2.8 percent in the third.  Real nonresidential fixed investment decreased 3.1 percent, 
in contrast to an increase of 10.0 percent.  Nonresidential structures increased 0.8 percent, compared 
with an increase of 15.7 percent.  Equipment and software decreased 4.8 percent, in contrast to an 
increase of 7.7 percent.  Real residential fixed investment decreased 19.8 percent, compared with a 
decrease of 18.7 percent.

	Real exports of goods and services increased 10.6 percent in the fourth quarter, compared with an 
increase of 6.8 percent in the third.  Real imports of goods and services decreased 2.6 percent, in 
contrast to an increase of 5.6 percent.

	Real federal government consumption expenditures and gross investment increased 4.6 percent in 
the fourth quarter, compared with an increase of 1.3 percent in the third.  National defense increased 
12.3 percent, in contrast to a decrease of 1.2 percent.  Nondefense decreased 9.6 percent, in contrast to 
an increase of 6.5 percent.  Real state and local government consumption expenditures and gross 
investment increased 2.7 percent, compared with an increase of 1.9 percent.

	The real change in private inventories subtracted 1.16 percentage points from the fourth-quarter 
change in real GDP, after adding 0.06 percentage point to the third-quarter change.  Private businesses 
increased inventories $22.4 billion in the fourth quarter, following increases of $55.4 billion in the third 
quarter and $53.7 billion in the second.

	Real final sales of domestic product -- GDP less change in private inventories -- increased 3.7 
percent in the fourth quarter, compared with an increase of 1.9 percent in the third.


Gross domestic purchases

	Real gross domestic purchases -- purchases by U.S. residents of goods and services wherever 
produced -- increased 0.8 percent in the fourth quarter, compared with an increase of 2.0 percent in the 
third. 


Gross national product

	Real gross national product -- the goods and services produced by the labor and property supplied 
by U.S. residents -- increased 3.5 percent in the fourth quarter, compared with 1.8 percent in the third.  
GNP includes, and GDP excludes, net receipts of income from the rest of the world, which increased 
$29.4 billion in the fourth quarter after decreasing $5.5 billion in the third; in the fourth quarter, receipts 
increased $28.2 billion, and payments decreased $1.2 billion.


Current-dollar GDP

	Current-dollar GDP -- the market value of the nation's output of goods and services -- increased 
4.1 percent, or $135.6 billion, in the fourth quarter to a level of $13,458.2 billion.  In the third quarter, 
current-dollar GDP increased 3.8 percent, or $125.3 billion.


Revisions

	The final estimate of the fourth-quarter increase in real GDP is 0.3 percentage point, or $6.5 
billion, higher than the preliminary estimate issued last month.  The upward revision to the percent 
change in real GDP primarily reflected an upward revision to private inventory investment that was 
partly offset by a downward revision to equipment and software investment.

Corporate Profits

	Profits from current production (corporate profits with inventory valuation and capital 
consumption adjustments) decreased $4.9 billion in the fourth quarter, in contrast to an increase of $61.5 
billion in the third quarter.  Current-production cash flow (net cash flow with inventory valuation and 
capital consumption adjustments) -- the internal funds available to corporations for investment -- 
decreased $1.1 billion in the fourth quarter, in contrast to an increase of $30.2 billion in the third.

	Taxes on corporate income decreased $14.4 billion in the fourth quarter, in contrast to an increase 
of $14.5 billion in the third.  Profits after tax with inventory valuation and capital consumption 
adjustments increased $9.6 billion, compared with an increase of $47.0 billion.  Dividends increased 
$21.0 billion, compared with an increase of $19.3 billion; current-production undistributed profits 
decreased $11.5 billion, in contrast to an increase of $27.8 billion.

        Domestic profits of financial corporations increased $20.5 billion in the fourth quarter, in contrast
to a decrease of $9.1 billion in the third.  Domestic profits of nonfinancial corporations decreased $62.6 
billion in the fourth quarter, in contrast to an increase of $75.8 billion in the third.  In the fourth quarter, 
real gross value added of nonfinancial corporations increased, and profits per unit of real value added 
decreased.  The decrease in unit profits reflected a small increase in unit prices that was more than offset 
by increases in both the unit labor and nonlabor costs corporations incurred.

	The rest-of-the-world component of profits increased $37.3 billion in the fourth quarter, in 
contrast to a decrease of $5.3 billion in the third.  This measure is calculated as (1) receipts by U.S. 
residents of earnings from their foreign affiliates plus dividends received by U.S. residents from 
unaffiliated foreign corporations minus (2) payments by U.S. affiliates of earnings to their foreign 
parents plus dividends paid by U.S. corporations to unaffiliated foreign residents.  The fourth-quarter 
increase was accounted for by an increase in receipts and a decrease in payments.

	Profits before tax with inventory valuation adjustment is the best available measure of industry 
profits because estimates of the capital consumption adjustment by industry do not exist.  This measure 
reflects depreciation-accounting practices used for federal income tax returns.  According to this 
measure, domestic profits of financial corporations increased, while domestic profits of nonfinancial 
corporations decreased.  The decrease in nonfinancial corporations reflected decreases in ?other? 
nonfinancial industries, in wholesale trade, in manufacturing, and in transportation and warehousing that 
were partly offset by increases in retail trade, in information, and in utilities.  Within manufacturing, the 
decrease reflected a decrease in nondurable goods -- especially petroleum and coal products -- that was 
partly offset by an increase in durable goods.

	Profits before tax decreased $16.4 billion in the fourth quarter, in contrast to an increase of $42.5 
billion in the third.  The before-tax measure of profits does not reflect, as does profits from current 
production, the capital consumption and inventory valuation adjustments.  These adjustments convert 
depreciation of fixed assets and inventory withdrawals reported on a tax-return, historical-cost basis to 
the current-cost measures used in the national income and product accounts.  The capital consumption 
adjustment decreased $9.3 billion in the fourth quarter (from -$162.4 billion to -$171.7 billion), 
compared with a decrease of $1.6 billion in the third.  The inventory valuation adjustment increased 
$20.7 billion (from -$38.2 billion to -$17.5 billion), compared with an increase of $20.7 billion. 


Corporate profits in 2006

          Profits from current production increased 21.4 percent in 2006, compared with an increase of 12.5 
percent in 2005.  Domestic profits increased 21.1 percent, compared with an increase of 12.7 percent.  
The rest-of-the-world component of profits increased 23.4 percent, compared with an increase of 11.7 
percent.

         Taxes on corporate income increased 18.9 percent in 2006, compared with an increase of 33.1 
percent in 2005.  Profits after tax with inventory valuation and capital consumption adjustments 
increased 22.5 percent, compared with an increase of 5.5 percent.  Dividends increased 11.3 percent, 
compared with an increase of 6.9 percent; current-production undistributed profits increased 40.6 
percent, compared with an increase of 3.4 percent.
 
         According to the measure of profits before tax with inventory valuation adjustment, domestic 
profits of financial and nonfinancial corporations increased in 2006.  The increase in nonfinancial 
corporations reflected increases in all industries shown except motor vehicles; the largest increase was in 
manufacturing.  Within manufacturing, the largest increase was in petroleum and coal products.

  Note.--Users are cautioned that particularly for components that
exhibit rapid change in prices relative to other prices in the
economy, the chained-dollar estimates should not be used to measure
the component's relative importance or its contribution to the
growth rate of more aggregate series.  For accurate estimates of
the contributions to percent changes in real GDP, use table 2.

  1. This index is a supplemental measure that is based on household
expenditures for which there are observable price measures.  It
excludes most implicit prices (for example, the services furnished
without payment by financial intermediaries) and the expenses of
nonprofit institutions.  Percentage changes for these series are
included in the addenda to table 8 and in appendix table A.
  See "Explanatory Note" at the end of the tables.

  r Revised.  Revisions include changes to series affected by the
introduction of revised wage and salary estimates for the third
quarter of 2006.
  1. The current-dollar gross value added is deflated using the
gross value added chain-type price index for nonfinancial industries
from the GDP-by-industry accounts.  For periods when this price index
is not available, the chain-type price index for GDP goods and
structures is used.
  2. Chained-dollar consumption of fixed capital of nonfinancial
corporate business is calculated as the product of the chain-type
quantity index and the 2000 current-dollar value of the corresponding
series, divided by 100.
  3. Chained-dollar net value added of nonfinancial corporate
business is the difference between the gross value added and the
consumption of fixed capital.
  4. The deflator for gross value added of nonfinancial corporate
business divided by 100.

  r Revised
  1. Some components of final sales of computers include
computer parts.
  2. Farm output less intermediate goods and services purchased.
  3. Consists of GDP less gross value added of farm, of
households and institutions, and of general government.
  4. This index is a supplemental measure that is based on household
expenditures for which there are observable price measures.  It
excludes most implicit prices (for example, the services furnished
without payment by financial intermediaries) and the expenses of
nonprofit institutions.

     Explanatory Note: NIPA Measures of Quantities and Prices


     Current-dollar GDP is a measure of the market value of goods, services, and structures produced in
the economy in a particular period.  Changes in current-dollar GDP can be decomposed into quantity and
price components.  Quantities, or "real" measures, and prices are expressed as index numbers with the
reference year -- at present, the year 2000 -- equal to 100. 

     Annual changes in quantities and prices are calculated using a Fisher formula that incorporates
weights from two adjacent years.  (Quarterly changes in quantities and prices are calculated using a
Fisher formula that incorporates weights from two adjacent quarters; quarterly indexes are adjusted for
consistency to the annual indexes before percent changes are calculated.)  For example, the 2004-05
annual percent change in real GDP uses prices for 2004 and 2005 as weights, and the 2004-05 annual
percent change in GDP prices uses quantities for 2004 and 2005 as weights.  These annual changes are
"chained" (multiplied) together to form time series of quantity and price indexes.  Percent changes in
Fisher indexes are not affected by the choice of reference year.  (BEA also publishes a measure of the
price level known as the implicit price deflator (IPD), which is calculated as the ratio of the
current-dollar value to the corresponding chained-dollar value, multiplied by 100.  The values of the IPD
are very close to the values of the corresponding "chain-type" price index.)

     Index numbers of quantity and price indexes for GDP and its major components are presented in this
release in tables 5 and 6.  Percent changes from the preceding period are presented in tables 1, 4, 7, and 8.
Contributions by major components to changes in real GDP are presented in table 2.  

     Measures of real GDP and its major components are also presented in dollar-denominated form,
designated "chained (2000) dollar estimates."  For most series, these estimates, which are presented in
table 3, are computed by multiplying the current-dollar value in 2000 by a corresponding quantity index
number and then dividing by 100.  For example, if a current-dollar GDP component equaled $100 in
2000 and if real output for this component increased 10 percent in 2001, then the chained (2000) dollar
value of this component in 2001 would be $110 (= $100 x 110 / 100).  Percent changes calculated from
chained-dollar estimates and from chain-type quantity indexes are the same; any differences will be small
and due to rounding.  

     Chained-dollar values for the detailed GDP components will not necessarily sum to the chained-dollar
estimate of GDP (or to any intermediate aggregate).  This is because the relative prices used as weights
for any period other than the reference year differ from those of the reference year. A measure of the
extent of such differences is provided by a "residual" line, which indicates the difference between GDP
(or other major aggregate) and the sum of the most detailed components in the table.  For periods close to
the reference year, when there usually has not been much change in the relative prices that are used as
weights, the residuals tend to be small, and the chained-dollar estimates can be used to approximate the
contributions to growth and to aggregate the detailed estimates.  For periods further from the reference
year, the residuals tend to be larger, and the chained-dollar estimates are less useful for analyses of
contributions to growth.  Thus, the contributions to percent change shown in table 2 provide a better
measure of the composition of GDP growth.  In particular, for components for which relative prices are
changing rapidly, calculation of contributions using chained-dollar estimates may be misleading even just
a few years from the reference year.
