by Calculated Risk on 3/30/2023 08:37:00 AM

From the BEA: Gross Domestic Product, Fourth Quarter and Year 2022 (Third Estimate), GDP by Industry, and Corporate Profits

Real gross domestic product (GDP) increased at an annual rate of 2.6 percent in the fourth quarter of 2022), according to the "third" estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the third quarter, real GDP increased 3.2 percent.

The GDP estimate released today is based on more complete source data than were available for the "second" estimate issued last month. In the second estimate, the increase in real GDP was 2.7 percent. The revision primarily reflected downward revisions to exports and consumer spending (refer to "Updates to GDP"). Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP, were revised down.
emphasis added
Here is a Comparison of Third and Second Estimates. PCE growth was revised down from 1.4% to 1.0%. Residential investment was revised up from -25.9% to -25.1%.
