Also manufacturing output grew by 0. 3% however the agriculture industry actually shrank by 0.2%.

The service sector was the overall winner, with widespread growth. Increases were seen in business services, transportation, hotels, food services, communication and storage.

The service sector is now officially above the previous high by 3%, the last previous peak was in 2008. The latest figures are showing that the economy recovery is will underway and it is being led by consumer spending.
