Advance Report:

The estimate of U.S. selected services total revenue for the second calendar quarter of 2017, not adjusted for seasonal variation, or for price changes, was $3,685.1 billion, an increase of 3.2 percent (+/- 0.6%) from the first quarter of 2017 and up 6.2 percent (+/- 0.6%) from the second quarter of 2016. The fourth quarter of 2016 to first quarter of 2017 percentage change was not revised from the preliminary estimate of -1.3 percent (+/- 0.6%).

2nd Qtr 2017: +3.2 % change
1st Qtr 2017 : -1.3 % change


 (*) The 90% confidence interval includes zero. The Census Bureau does not have sufficient statistical evidence to conclude that the actual change is different from zero.

 (°) Statistical significance is not applicable or not measurable for these surveys. The Manufacturers’ Shipments, Inventories and Orders estimates are not based on a probability sample, so we can neither measure the sampling error of these estimates nor compute confidence intervals.

(r) Revised.

All estimates are seasonally adjusted except for the Rental Vacancy Rate, Home Ownership Rate, Quarterly Financial Report for Retail Trade, and Quarterly Services Survey. None of the estimates are adjusted for price changes.
