Real Gross Domestic Product by State & Area

… tools to access and analyze GDP patterns and trends … Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is a comprehensive measure of U.S. economic activity. This section provides access to annual GDP estimates for the period 2010 through 2015 and tools to analyze these data. The 2015 data are the latest estimates as of June 2016 (about these data). This section provides data and tools focused on the U.S. and states. In September 2016, this section updates to include the new 2015 estimates of metropolitan area GDP and revised historical updates. Follow this blog to receive updates. See the related Web section for more details about topics covered in this post.

Patterns of Per Capita Real GDP & Percent Change by State
The following graphic shows patterns of the 2015 per capita real GDP by state. The color patterns/intervals are shown in the inset legend. In the larger view (click graphic), states are labeled with 2015 per capita real GDP (white label) and percent change in per capita real GDP, 2010-2015. Click graphic for larger view.

Use the GIS tools described below to develop thematic pattern map using any combination of these items from 2000 forward.

Importance
GDP is an important part of planning, management and decision-making in the private and public sectors. It is watched closely by all stakeholders as to how the economy is trending. By adjusting current dollar GDP to constant dollar GDP, we can better examine the trends and patterns by removing inflation from the measures. By examining GDP at the metro and sub-state area, businesses and policy-makers can better determine GDP patterns on a regional basis. Regional analysis of GDP is very important as magnitude and change vary widely. By examining the size and trends of regional real GDP on a per capita basis, we are better able to examine patterns and trends at the individual level.

Modeling, Projections & Access/Analysis/Interpretive Tools
GDP is an important part of the ProximityOne Regional Demographic-Economic Modeling System (RDEMS). The RDEMS model specifies cause and effect relationships with GDP and GDP components and other data to develop current estimates and projections.

Use these tools to access/analyze GDP characteristics and patterns:
• interactive table – access in related Web section
• analyzing patterns using GIS resources – see details in related Web ection
• RDEMS database access
.. illustrative example of GDP patterns in context with other measures
.. Texas briefing notes (see notes “Texas per capita real GDP” on that page)
.. Access briefing notes for any state

Interactive Table
Use the interactive table below to examine per capita real GDP by state in context of other states and the U.S. This table expands to include metros in September 2016. The content of the table also expands to include GDP sectors and components

Navigating the Federal Statistical System: Important County Level Data Updates

.. several important U.S. by county demographic-economic data resources become available in the November-December time period .. review how these data mesh with your needs and mark your calendar.

There are many reasons that national scope county-level data are important. The county geographic level is the most widely used statistical data summary level. While many analyze ZIP code data, there is a narrow range of ZIP code summary data available compared to county level data. Counties offer a good geographic drill-down; data can be analyzed for sub-metro and sub-state areas. County geography changes very little over time; counties offer more geographic stability for long-term analysis than metros (above them) or census tracts (below them).
