Historical and projected estimates of potential GDP and the NAIRU - January 1991 to January 2009

January 7, 2009

"Real-time" data for potential GDP (gross domestic product) and the NAIRU (nonaccelerating inflation rate of unemployment); that is, time series estimates of those variables as they existed at the time of publication.

These spreadsheets reflect CBO's estimates, assumptions, and projections at the time the associated publication was released; that is, the spreadsheets are not continuously updated.
