State GDP Patterns & Trends 2000-2009
-- economic downturn widespread among states in 2009
Real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) declined in 38 states in 2009, led by national downturns in durable–goods manufacturing and construction, according to latest estimates prepared by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (11/17/10). U.S. real GDP by state declined 2.1 percent in 2009 after increasing 0.1 percent in 2008.
The U.S. produced 25.3% of the world GDP in 2009, and led the world in single country real GDP ($14,256 trillion). China outpaced the U.S. in percent growth in real GDP over the period 2000-2009 by a factor of 7. An even faster rate during the past three years. Will China GDP overtake U.S. GDP before 2030?

About Gross Domestic Product
GDP by state is the state counterpart of the Nation’s gross domestic product (GDP), the most comprehensive measure of U.S. economic activity. GDP by state is derived as the sum of the GDP originating in all the industries in a state.
The statistics of real GDP by state are prepared in chained (2005) dollars. Real GDP by state is an inflation-adjusted measure of each state’s gross product that is based on national prices for the goods and services produced within that state. The statistics of real GDP by state and of quantity indexes with a base year of 2005 were derived by applying national chain-type price indexes to the current-dollar GDP-by-state values for the 64 detailed NAICS-based industries for 1997 forward and for the 63 detailed SIC-based industries for 1977–1997.
