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. The NAICS-based statistics of GDP by state are consistent with U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) while the SIC-based statistics of GDP by state are consistent with U.S. gross domestic income (GDI). With the comprehensive revision of June 2014, the NAICS-based statistics of GDP by state incorporated significant improvements to more accurately portray the state economies. Two such improvements were recognizing research and development expenditures as capital and the capitalization of entertainment, literary, and other artistic originals. These improvements have not been incorporated in the SIC-based statistics. In addition, there are differences in source data and different estimation methodologies. This data discontinuity may affect both the levels and the growth rates of GDP by state. Users of GDP by state are strongly cautioned against appending the two data series in an attempt to construct a single time series for 1963 to 2013.

Industry detail note:
NAICS industry detail is based on the 2007 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.

Gross Domestic Product by Metropolitan Area

The estimates are based on county earnings by industry estimates from BEA's local area personal income accounts released November 26, 2012, GDP-by-state estimates released June 6, 2013, and wage data from BLS's Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages through the fourth quarter of 2012.
