December 2022 .. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by county is a measure of the value of production that occurs within the geographic boundaries of a county. It can be computed as the sum of the value added originating from each of the industries in a county.

GDP is the value of goods and services produced within a county. The size of a county's economy as measured by GDP varies considerably across the U.S. In 2021, real gross domestic product (GDP) increased in 2,404 counties, decreased in 691 counties, and was unchanged in 17 counties. The percent change in real GDP ranged from 81.8 percent in Coke County, TX to -34.8 percent in Chouteau County, MT. The total level of real GDP ranged from $11.7 million in Petroleum County, MT to $711.9 billion in Los Angeles County, CA. These data are based on estimates developed by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) and released in December 2022.

This section is focused on U.S. national scope county level estimates of real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) annually 2001 through 2021. Use the interactive table below to rank, compare, query counties based on real GDP by sector.

Data presented in this section are "real" values .. data that are inflation-adjusted statistics and exclude the effects of price changes. "Current-dollar" statistics, not shown in this section, are valued in the prices of the period when the transactions occurred .. at "market value" or "nominal GDP" or "current-price GDP."

Presentation & Interpretative Notes
The table below shows real GDP by sector for each state and county. The 34 rows for each county provide data for each sector and summary levels like "All industries."

While the annual time series for these data runs from 2001 through 2021, only data for 2019, 2020 and 2021 are presented in the table below. As it is, the scope of tabular data are difficult to consume due to the volume and detail. These three recent years reflect pre-pandemic (2019), pandemic (2020) and post-pandemic (2021) or reasonably close. The change over time, comparison period, used in the table is 2019 compared to 2021. Different sectors in different counties were impacted in different and possible skewed ways in 2020.

Many data items in the table have a negative value (-1) indicating that value was suppressed. The most common reason for data suppression is to avoid release of confidential information -- where there is a dominant firm is a particular sector. When there is suppression in a sector in a year, complimentary suppression will also occur in another sector in that year so that a suppressed value in one sector cannot be determined by summing and subtracting from total.
