Here are the GDP statistics for each release for fourth quarter of 2006, and the final GDP quarterly growth rate for the previous quarters. (Each year, the BEA revises these figures, based on new data. I've updated this sheet with the revisions made for each year, so you can see how much these estimates change. The update made on July 29, 2011, is first, with the prior estimates' in parentheses.)
