Top 50 US Metro Areas by Gross Metropolitan Production (Economic Output)

  • An interesting thing to note is that the when you sort by the highest per capita GDP the top 9 metro areas are coastal regions.  And while, there is a lot of East Coast vs West Coast, some of the cities aren’t exactly the ones that you would think would appear.
  • Detroit Metro area seems to be doing better than all the stories would make you think. Sure it’s towards the bottom, but it’s no where near the post apocalyptic vision that people make it out to be.

Note: the data is from the Census Bureau’s 2010 results and the US Treasury
