The GDPNow model estimate for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the third quarter of 2023 is 5.4 percent on October 25, unchanged from October 18 after rounding. After recent releases from the US Census Bureau, the US Department of the Treasury’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service, and the National Association of Realtors, the nowcast of third-quarter real government spending growth decreased from 3.1 percent to 3.0 percent after rounding.

The Atlanta Fed has been accurate in modeling GDP growth over the last two quarters.

Will they make it 3 for 3 in 2023?

We will see at 8:30 AM tomorrow.
