In the current year, which is the year 2021, the GDP is at 22.785 trillion. The highest growth was experienced in the year 2008, which was a 2.9 percent increment. However, due to the Covid -19 pandemic there was a GDP drop in 2020. The GDP per sector is.

·       Agriculture sector 0.9%

Economic sector

·       Health care

Health care has led to a massive boost of the United States economy. The sector has led to more jobs creation. The primary reason for the job creation includes Increased demand for workers due to chronic diseases that the aging population faces, and additional employees are needed to take care of the aging population.

·       Technology

Most of the sectors require technology for them to work effectively. This has led to more employees filling the gap.

·       Aerospace

The United States is famously known for manufacturing airplanes. We have seen companies such as Boeing and General Dynamics making military aircraft and private airplanes.

 

Employment 

The country has the fourth highest labor force in the world. In the year 2017, there were about 160.4 million people in the employment sector. The main employer is small businesses which contribute 37% of the employees. Large business sectors follow closely with around 36% of the labor force.

Private sectors also employ a vast workforce than the government, where the private sector accounts for 85% while the government accounts for 14% of the workforce. Statistics collected in the year 2018 the employment sector labor force for various sectors are as follows.

·       Services 80%

·       Agriculture 1%

Statistics for the year ending 31st December 2017 showed that the rate of unemployment was at 4.1 percent. That indicates that around 6.6 million people in the United States were not employed during that year. The primary reasons for unemployment include.

·       Demographic shifts

·       Retirements

Unemployment has gradually increased over the years. However, in May 2014, there was an increase in payroll jobs as the economy recovered. However, the Covid 19 pandemic has had adverse effects. The unemployment rate in April 2020 rose to 14.7% then fell to 11.1 % at the end of June 2020. By August 2021, the unemployment rate of the United States stands at 5.2%.

Statistics by the international monetary fund show that the United state's inflation rate is relatively low compared to other countries. A country like China had an inflation rate of 2.92 percent in 2020.

 

Income and wealth

1.    Income inequality

The income inequality of a country is how the income is distributed among the people. With such data, we know how many people are in the lower class, middle class, and high class. In 2017 United States income inequality was ranked 41 out of 156 countries. Income equality has risen over the years. From the 1970s, the country has experienced a widening gap between median incomes and productivity. The main reasons for that being.

 

·       Decrease in per capita hours worked.

·       Increase in non-cash benefits, which are not counted as CPS income data such as share of workers compensation.

·       Statistical distortion.

·       Immigrants are entering the labor force.

·       Income ever-changing from labor to capital.

·       Period adjustment after an income surge such as post wars.

 

2.    Household net worth and wealth inequality

In 2017 the household net worth of the United States was $ 99 trillion. That was a $5.2 trillion increase from the previous year. The $ 99 trillion represents each person getting $ 302,000.

Studies in 2017 show that wealth inequality is at high records where it was estimated that 1 percent will regulate 70% of United States wealth by 2021. Wealth inequality is very high as compared to other developed countries. We can see it as the ten top wealthiest countries with about 80%  of the financial assets.

 

3.    Homeownership

In 2018, the homeownership rate was 62.4%.  Homeownership is relatively high in comparison to other countries. The country's average home equals 65 square meters, fifty percent more than most average high-income countries. Research done by Pew Research Centre shows that Americans of age between 18 and 34 are more probable to stay with their guardians.
