US GDP Data and Charts 1980-2020

In this article, we will share the charts and data for the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) related indicators of the United States of America (US). We will provide the charts and data for Nominal GDP, Nominal GDP per capita, and Real GDP Growth. We will present the charts and data for these indicators during the 40-year period from 1980 to 2020. We have used the publicly available data from International Monetary Fund (IMF). The data for 2019 and 2020 are estimates by IMF staff.

To make the charts little interesting, we have added the information about the parties leading the governments during the different time periods. We have also provided the information about the presidents of the US from 1980 to 2018. This can help us relate the GDP indicator data during a particular time period with the party leading the government and its leader. The table below provides information on the presidents of the US from 1980 to 2018, their parties, and their office start and end years.
