Annual percent change in real GDP

Real gross domestic product (GDP) is an official inflation-adjusted version of GDP calculated by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Annual percent change in real GDP shows how much higher or lower it is relative to the previous year. The higher that real GDP is, the larger absolute increase required to achieve a certain growth rate, and vice versa.

In 2021, the annual percent change in real GDP in the US was 5.7%, an increase of 9.1% from 2019.
