Yeah Houston as a city proper by GDP probably plays a backseat to the District in addition to New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. By CSA, it's tenth in population and seventh in GDP.

Miami's really the only one punching below it's weight. Ninth largest in population (4,000 larger than Houston) and playing recess with Seattle out of the top 10 in GDP. Oh well, a game of patty cake with smaller places will give Miami time to reinvent itself to a more white collar/desirable economy.

Out of that list the Bay Area and the DMV are both superstars pound for pound

That's because Houston is THE city in the region; the CSA appears to be just some small towns added to the MSA since they are only micropolitan areas. Apparently they don't even add to the GDP since the MSA and CSA GDP figures are exactly the same.

San Diego-Carlsbad, CA Metropolitan Statistical Area: $182.6 Billion
San Diego-Carlsbad, CA Metropolitan Statistical Area $182.6 Billion

Atlanta's status is tenth in GDP but eleventh in population, while slightly, it's delivering above it's weight in that regard. If Detroit absorbed Toledo and added in Windsor, Canada which would put it's population right behind Miami and Houston by a few thousands, it's GDP would surpass Miami's by $3 Billion (including Windsor's USD GDP conversion).

GDP is inflated by the population of a metro area. I did the math and here are statistics of GDP per capita:

Per Capita GDP rating score:

San Francisco per capita 8.465
Washington DC per capita 7.777
Seattle per capita 7.558
Boston per capita 7.464
New York City per capita 6.956
Dallas per capita 6.512
Philadelphia per capita 6.212
Chicago per capita 6.152
Los Angeles per capita 6.070
San Diego per capita 5.747
Atlanta pe capita 5.586
Miami per capita 4.917
Detroit per capita 4.916
Phoenix per capita 4.852

The formula I used to calculate these ratings might be imperfect, but notice how the list reflects the health of the economies of each metropolitan area. San Francisco, DC, Seattle, and Boston, in particular, are heralded for their healthy economies. This list gives proof to that belief because, per capita, these cities pack the most powerful punch for their size.

Actually I would say the opposite. For being a CSA, it punches above its weight. It has a larger GDP than two cities that have a larger population than them.

Considering this list is by CSA, I disagree. Boston and DC are far larger CSAs and it's no surprise they are higher.

NY didn't take anything from the Philly area.

These stats are based on the same standards for all metros. They are applied equally, to all. If an area is part of a CSA, it means it has stronger connections to that CSA based on commuting patterns.
