The Commerce Department has today revealed the US economy grew by an annualised 3.1% in the October to December period a�� higher than the previous estimate of 2.8%.

It was also slightly better than analysts forecast of a 3% growth rate.

The upward revision in GDP was attributed to higher consumer spending – which grew at an annual rate of 4% – the best showing for four years.

Consumer spending is closely monitored as it accounts for approximately 70% of total economic output.

For the whole of 2010, the worlda��s largest economy grew by 2.9%.
