Direct expenditures for 2014 totaled $174.31 billion, up from $124 billion the year before, and resulted in the following economic contributions to the U.S. economy:

  • Total contribution to U.S. GDP reached $528.09 billion, up from $376.35 billion in 2013.
  • Personal earnings (or wages and salaries paid) totaled $168.42 billion, up from $120.02 billion in 2013.
  • Jobs supported (a measure of both new and existing jobs) reached 3.94 million in 2014, up from 2.81 million the year before.
