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 2016.
