Okay, so this information is by the Brookings Institution, they don't have the exact figures for the GDP but they have the percentage share a Metro takes up of the national GDP.

The question here is, do you believe that this is accurate for 2010? Personally some errors I noticed instantly were the population figures for all the Metro's are not in sync with the US Census for what they claim as the 2010 population (so far) & the 2007 Per Capita Incomes are a bit off when related to BEA.
