Chicago - The U.S. economy will grow 3% next year, but there won't be much improvement in the still very high unemployment rate, according to the annual economic forecast compiled by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.

Based on the median forecast, the survey predicted real gross domestic product - measuring all goods and services produced in the U.S. - will increase 3% in 2011, from expectations for 2.4% growth this year.
