Gross Domestic Product: First Quarter 2010 (Advance Estimate)
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 
3.2 percent in the first quarter of 2010, (that is, from the fourth quarter to the 
first quarter), according to the "advance" estimate released by the Bureau of 
Economic Analysis. 
In the fourth quarter, real GDP increased 5.6 percent.

      The Bureau emphasized that the first-quarter advance estimate released today 
is based on source data that are incomplete or subject to further revision by the 
source agency (see the box on page 3). 
The "second" estimate for the first quarter, based on more complete data, 
will be released on May 27, 2010.
