GDP by County Coming Dec. 12
BEA is developing its first gross domestic product statistics for counties. A news release and prototype data will be posted here Dec. 12 at 8:30 a.m. Eastern.
These statistics for 3,113 counties and county equivalents will initially cover the years 2012-2015. The data for each county will include current-dollar GDP statistics, inflation-adjusted GDP figures, and real annual growth rates. The data will be further broken down into three categories: goods-producing industries, services-producing industries, and government.
After receiving feedback on the prototype statistics, BEA will continue to refine its methodology before beginning regular annual releases of GDP by county statistics in December 2019.
- Next Release: December 12, 2018
What is GDP by County?
A comprehensive measure of the economies of counties (or county equivalents, such as Louisiana's parishes). Gross domestic product estimates the value of the goods and services produced in a county. It can be used to compare the size and growth of county economies across the nation.
