Coronavirus (COVID-19) Impact on the Second-Quarter 2020 GDP by State Estimates

The decline in second quarter GDP reflected the response to COVID-19, as "stay-at-home" orders issued in March and April were partially lifted in some areas of the country in May and June, and government pandemic assistance payments were distributed to households and businesses. This led to rapid shifts in activity, as businesses and schools continued remote work and consumers and businesses canceled, restricted, or redirected their spending. The full economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic cannot be quantified in the GDP estimate for the second quarter of 2020 because the impacts are generally embedded in source data and cannot be separately identified.

Accommodation and food services; healthcare and social assistance; and durable goods manufacturing were the leading contributors to the decrease in real GDP nationally (table 2). Accommodation and food services was the leading contributor to the decreases in Hawaii and Nevada.

Other highlights

  • Accommodation and food services decreased 88.4 percent nationally and contributed to the decreases in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. This industry was the leading contributor to the decreases in 17 states and the District of Columbia.
  • Healthcare and social assistance decreased 48.1 percent nationally and contributed to the decreases in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. This industry was the leading contributor to the decreases in 18 states, including Tennessee the state with the third largest decrease.
  • Durable goods manufacturing decreased 43.3 percent nationally and contributed to the decreases in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. This industry was the leading contributor to the decreases in eight states.
  • Finance and insurance increased 11.9 percent nationally. This industry moderated decreases in real GDP in 48 states and the District of Columbia. This industry was the leading offset to the decline in Delaware, the state with the smallest decrease in real GDP.
