CBO’s Baseline Budget Projections, as of May 2013, With Percentages of GDP Updated to Reflect Recent Revisions by the Bureau of Economic Analysis

September 11, 2013
Data and Technical Information


This table updates Table 1 in CBO's Updated Budget Projections: Fiscal Years 2013 to 2023 (May 2013).

In July 2013, the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) revised upward the historical values for gross domestic product (GDP); CBO extrapolated from those revisions so that its baseline projections of GDP reflect them. Although CBO's projections of revenues, outlays, deficits, and debt over the 2013-2023 period have not changed since they were issued in May, those amounts measured as a percentage of GDP are now lower as a result of BEA's revisions.
