(CNN) – The U.S. economy didn't fare as well as once thought at the beginning of year, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
The gross domestic product, which is the broadest measure of economic growth, fell at a 1 percent annual pace in the first quarter.
That's the first downturn since 2011.
Previous numbers had shown a modest growth.
But experts aren't too worried about the new figures, they say Jan through March tends to be the slowest for growth and a bounce back is expected in the spring.
