United States Current Account  1960-2016 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The current account gap in the United States narrowed to USD 119.9 billion or 2.6 percent of GDP in the second quarter of 2016 from an upwardly revised USD 131.8 billion shortfall in the previous period and slightly less than market expectations of a USD 120.5 billion deficit. The narrowing reflects an USD 8.9 billion increase in the surplus on primary income to USD 42.9 billion; a USD 3.1 billion decrease in the deficit on secondary income to USD 37.6 billion and a USD 0.4 billion increase in the surplus on services to USD 61.5 billion. These changes were partly offset by a USD 0.5 billion increase in the deficit on goods to USD 186.7 billion. Current Account in the United States averaged -46686.85 USD Million from 1960 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 9957 USD Million in the first quarter of 1991 and a record low of -216063 USD Million in the third quarter of 2006. Current Account in the United States is reported by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis.
