Cool map, shows how each Brazilian state matches a country with total GDP, GDP per capita, and population

Interesting...

But the GDP and GDP per capita data are from 2008...

We may have had some changes since then...

Probably, but this is the only comparison I could find, and I doubt things have changed drastically. You could compile one using wikipedia but that is going to be tedious.

Anyway I was somewhat surprised. I always thought Rio Grande had the highest GDP per capita.

Not really... Rio Grande do Sul holds the sixth place in GDP per capita.

The highest GDP per capita is the Federal District (equivalent to Washington D.C. in the United States). It has the highest concentration of high income federal employees in the country, and that's why the GDP per capita is so high.

After the Federal District, the two highest GDP per capita are in the states of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

Interesting to notice that the poorest state in Brazil, Piauí, has a GDP per capita equivalent to Georgia (the little country in the Caucasus, and not the American state! )

Yes, I too saw the map I presented so I saw the GDP per capita...

Federal district doesnt really count since it is just city. If other states were just cities they too would be higher.

I guess Porto Alegre is not represented of the rest of the state.
