Gross Domestic Product by County 2001 to Current - Bureau of Economic Analysis

data.pa.gov | Last Updated 2 Jul 2022

What is Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by County? GDP is a comprehensive measure of the economies of counties. Gross domestic product estimates the value of the goods and services produced in an area. It can be used to compare the size and growth of county economies across the state. This dataset is not not adjusted for inflation and represents the value of the goods and services in dollars at the time of the estimate. If you are looking to evaluate the growth of county economies over time, use of the Real GDP which is adjusted for inflation would eliminate changes in GDP caused by increases or decreases in the value of the US dollar.
