U.S. gross domestic product grew at an annual pace of 2.2 percent in the fourth quarter of last year, the Commerce Department said Friday in its third and final estimate of the economy's performance during the final three months of 2014.

The final figure is unchanged from the second estimate, which saw a downward revision from the initial reading of 2.6 percent growth, and confirms that the economy slowed considerably after expanding in the second and third quarters by 4.6 percent and 5 percent, respectively.
