The US economy grew by an annualized 2 percent in the second quarter of 2019, unrevised from the second estimate and following a 3.1 percent expansion in the previous three-month period. Downward revisions to personal consumption expenditures (PCE) and nonresidential fixed investment were primarily offset by upward revisions to state and local government spending and exports. Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP, were revised down.
