The third-quarter increase in real GDP mainly reflected a rise in consumer spending. Spending on services increased, notably on health care. Spending on nondurable and durable goods also rose.

State and local government spending, business investment, exports, and residential investment also contributed to the increase in GDP.

Partly offsetting these contributions to GDP growth, private inventory investment fell, mainly in wholesale trade and in manufacturing.

Final sales of domestic product—GDP less inventory investment—increased 3.0 percent in the third quarter.
