The GDP growth rate is driven by the four components of GDP. The main driver of GDP growth is personal consumption. This includes the critical sector of retail sales. The second component is the business investment, including construction and inventory levels.

Why Is the GDP Growth Rate Important?

The GDP growth rate is the most important indicator of economic health. It changes during the four phases of the business cycle: expansion, peak, contraction and trough.

When the economy is expanding, the GDP growth rate is positive. If it's growing, so will businesses, jobs and personal income. But if it expands beyond 3-4 percent, then it could hit the peak. At that point, the bubble bursts and economic growth stalls.
