The US economy will show a rebound from the worst recession since the Great Depression, the Commerce Department said on Friday.
The report will be released on Friday, and analysts expect the economic recovery will continue.
The US economy shrank by 0.6% in the first quarter, the weakest quarterly contraction since the late 1990s.
The weak first quarter followed the collapse of oil prices that pushed the US economy into a deep recession.
In the second quarter, growth is expected to be around 1.5%, a more than two-year low.
The jobs market has been sluggish, but there is optimism that it will bounce back as businesses look for ways to hire workers.
The unemployment rate fell to 4.4% in December from 5.7% a year earlier.
The economy is expected in the third quarter to expand by about 1.1%.
