This section provides information on how GDP by industry is changing for the U.S. and by region, state and metro and tools to examine these data. Use the interactive table below and GIS project, to analyze change by state using latest estimates. These data are used by ProximityOne to develop/update demographic-economic projections. Examine these data/patterns contextually with other subject matter and geography using the Situation & Outlook (S&O) Reports.
Narrative Analysis of GDP by Industry & Change by State & Metro
A narrative summary and analysis of GDP for the U.S. and each state and metro by industry, contextually with other data and geography, is provided for each area in the Situation & Outlook Reports. Access current data via interactive table updated as shown in the schedule. Subscribe here.
Updates -- Quarterly Estimates & Projections of GDP by Industry
Annual estimates of U.S., state and metro GDP by industry through 2015 shown in the interactive table below are developed by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) each year. This section updates with BEA-sourced annual U.S., state and metro GDP by industry data through 2016 in September 2017. The upcoming data will provide more complete 2015 estimates and new 2016 estimates.
BEA does not produce quarterly metro GDP estimates or GDP projections for any geographic level. Part of the Situation & Outlook program, ProximityOne develops quarterly estimates and projections of GDP by industry (U.S., region, state, metro). The ProximityOne quarterly GDP by industry data provide insights into the current situation and how the economy is trending.
Many industry level estimates developed by BEA are not available due to suppression and other reasons. All data fields/items are provided in the ProximityOne data; there is no suppression or missing data.
The quarterly GDP by industry series starts with 2015Q1 and runs quarterly; there is a data availability lag of two quarters. For example, the 2017Q2 data become available in the 2017Q4. Projections are updated quarterly and run 12 quarters ahead, providing a 3-year outlook. The full U.S., state and metro database may be downloaded by licensed users.

Terms & Definitions -- goto top
These terms and definitions are derived from documentation developed by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
Gross domestic product (GDP) by state is the market value of goods and services produced by the labor and property located in a state. GDP by state is the state counterpart of the U.S. GDP, the most comprehensive measure of U.S. economic activity.
Current-dollar statistics are valued in the prices of the period when the transactions occurred, at market value. Also referred to as nominal GDP or current-price GDP.
Real values are inflation-adjusted statistics; these exclude the effects of price changes.
Contributions to growth are an industry contribution to the state overall percent change in real GDP. The contributions are additive and can be summed to the state overall percent change.
Seasonal adjustment and annual rates. Quarterly values are expressed at seasonally-adjusted annual rates.
Quantities and prices. Quantities, or "real" measures, are expressed as index numbers with a specified reference year equal to 100 (currently 2009). Quantity indexes are calculated using a chained weighted formula that incorporates weights from two adjacent periods (quarters for quarterly data and annuals for annual data). "Real" dollar series are calculated by multiplying the published quantity index by the current dollar value in the reference year (2009) and then dividing by 100. Percent changes calculated from chained-dollar levels and quantity indexes are conceptually the same; any differences are due to rounding.
Chained-dollar values are not additive because the relative weights for a given period differ from those of the reference year.
Chained-dollar values of GDP by state are derived by applying national chain-type price indexes to the current dollar values of GDP by state for the 21 NAICS-based industry sectors. The chain-type index formula that is used in the national accounts is then used to calculate the values of total real GDP by state and real GDP by state at more aggregated industry levels. Real GDP by state may reflect a substantial volume of output that is sold to other states and countries. To the extent that a state's output is produced and sold in national markets at relatively uniform prices (or sold locally at national prices), real GDP by state captures the differences across states that reflect the relative differences in the mix of goods and services that the states produce. However, real GDP by state does not capture geographic differences in the prices of goods and services that are produced and sold locally.
Relation of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by State for the U.S. to GDP in the National Accounts. An industry's GDP by state, or its value added, in practice, is calculated as the sum of incomes earned by labor and capital and the costs incurred in the production of goods and services. It includes the wages and salaries that workers earn, the income earned by individual or joint entrepreneurs as well as by corporations, and business taxes such as sales, property, and Federal excise taxes—that count as a business expense.
GDP is calculated as the sum of what consumers, businesses, and government spend on final goods and services, plus investment and net foreign trade. In theory, incomes earned should equal what is spent, but due to different data sources, the measurement of income earned, usually referred to as gross domestic income (GDI), does not always equal the measurement of what is spent (GDP). The difference is referred to as the "statistical discrepancy."
GDP by state for the U.S. differs from the GDP in the national income and product accounts (NIPAs) and thus from the Industry Economic Accounts GDP by industry, because GDP by state for the U.S. excludes federal military and civilian activity located overseas, which cannot be attributed to a particular state.
