According to data released by the US Commerce Department, the US economy grew at a faster than expected pace in the third quarter of this year.

The country’s gross domestic product (GDP) rose 3.9% year over year in the third quarter, after posting a growth rate of 4.6% in the second quarter. The Commerce Department’s initial estimates reported an increase of 3.5%.

Higher consumer spending and stronger business investment were cited as the main reasons behind the country’s faster growth in the third quarter. Consumer spending increased 2.2% on a yearly basis in the third quarter, up from a previously estimated rate of 1.8%, while business investment climbed 6.2% in the quarter.
