Regular features

1 Business Situation (PDF)

Real GDP increased 2.7 percent in the first quarter of 1995, down from a 5.1- percent increase in the fourth quarter of 1994. Corporate profits increased $8.5 billion after increasing $4.3 billion. The Federal Government deficit dropped to $150.3 billion, and the State and local government surplus edged up to $29.7 billion.

36 Pollution Abatement and Control Expenditures, 1993 (PDF)

Real spending for pollution abatement and control (PAC) increased 4.2 percent in 1993, compared with a 4.7-percent increase in 1992. Spending continued to increase across all sectors of the economy; the largest increases were in business capital spending (5.8 percent) and State and local government purchases (12.0 percent). Spending for air PAC and for solid waste disposal each increased about 7 percent, but spending for water PAC decreased.

47 Gross State Product, 1991-92 (PDF)

In 1992, 10 States had increases in real gross state product (GSP) that were at least 2 percentage points above the U.S. average of 2.5 percent; North Dakota and Idaho had increases of over 6 percent. Three States—California, Louisiana, and Alaska—had declines in real GSP.

57 Foreign Direct Investment in the United States: New Investment in 1994 and Affiliate Operations in 1993 (PDF)

In 1994, outlays by foreign investors for acquiring and establishing U.S. businesses increased sharply, as they had in 1993. In 1993, the sharp increase in new investments contributed to rises in most measures of the operations of U.S. affiliates of foreign companies. For example, the gross product of non-bank U.S. affiliates increased 9.0 percent in 1993, and their share of U.S. private-industry gross product increased to 6.1 percent from 5.9 percent in 1992.
