The U.S. gross domestic product
grew at a 4.1 percent annual rate in the third quarter, stronger than
Wall Street Journal reported.
The U.S. Department of Commerce
previously had estimated the annual growth at 3.6 percent in the period of
July through September. The new 4.1 percent estimate showed that GDP expanded
at the fastest pace since the fourth quarter of 2011 and the second-fastest
since the recovery began in mid-2009.
The higher estimate, the Journal
reported, was driven by a revision in consumer spending, which the Commerce
Department now says grew at a 2 percent annual rate in the summer instead of
the previously estimated 1.4 percent.
report released yesterday by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
said that the country's employment is projected to increase by 10.8 percent, or
15.6 million people, between 2012 and 2022. That compares with a growth of 2.1
percent, or 3.1 million people, between 2002 and 2012. The growth will be led
by occupations related to health care.
