The "final" estimates for the third quarter of 1994 show a growth in real GDP of 4.0 percent, about the same pace as in the second quarter. Real GNP increased 3.8 percent, also about the same pace as in the second quarter. Corporate profits increased $9.6 billion, considerably less than in the second quarter, when they had rebounded from the effects of the Northridge, California, earthquake.

The U.S. current-account deficit increased $3.8 billion, to $41.7 billion, in the third quarter. The deficit on goods and services increased, as merchandise imports increased more than merchandise exports. The deficit on investment income also increased, as income payments on foreign assets in the United States increased more than income receipts on U.S. assets abroad.
