Cautionary note:
There is a discontinuity in the GDP-by-state time series at 1997, where the data change from SIC industry definitions to NAICS industry definitions. This discontinuity results from many sources, including differences in source data and different estimation methodologies. In addition, the NAICS-based GDP-by-state estimates are consistent with U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) while the SIC-based GDP-by-state estimates are consistent with U.S. gross domestic income (GDI). This data discontinuity may affect both the levels and the growth rates of the GDP-by-state estimates. Users of the GDP-by-state estimates are strongly cautioned against appending the two data series in an attempt to construct a single time series of GDP-by-state estimates for 1963 to 2012.

Industry detail note:
NAICS industry detail is based on the 2002 NAICS. SIC industry detail for 1987-1997 is based on the 1987 SIC. SIC industry detail for 1963-1986 is based on the 1972 SIC.
