US Gross Output for 2014 Updated

On April 28, 2015, usgovernmentspending.com updated its Gross Output series with the latest data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, including nominal Gross Output for calendar 2014 of $31.001 trillion. Gross Output for some years previous to 2014 have been revised by BEA.

usgovernmentspending.com now reports Gross Output on its Spending Details page and permits charting of spending and revenue as "percent of Gross Output".

We have extended the Gross Output data series back to 1987.
