Philly does not include any of the suburban areas which may have the GDP just outside the smaller Philly boundaries plus Philly has lost a ton of jobs/GDP to its burbs - Montgomery County PA with many job centers (KOP etc.) is nearly the same size


2015 County GDP $20B+
Philadelphia, PA $110.339 Billion
Montgomery, PA $81.404 Billion
New Castle, DE $49.375 Billion
Chester, PA $42.967 Billion
Bucks, PA $30.862 Billion
Delaware, PA $28.937 Billion

the Montgomery's seem significant with major counties and job centers in DC, Philly, Houston and Cincy maybe others

Keep in mind GDP is not a measure of income but rather the total value of goods and service produced in a geographic area.

Because there are many collar counties around Cook with huge economic presence. DuPage and Lake have very large office markets and are on that list with another $150 billion in GDP.

Much more of the core economics of Houston are within Harris County.

Metro GDP:

Chicago: $680 billion
Houston: $490 billion

Houston has had a slowdown recently. In the past 5 years Chicago's GDP has increased by $94 billion. Houston's has increased by $2 billion.

Chicago has actually been doing pretty good since it has this image of being stuck or struggling. In the past five years only San Fran has closed the numbers gap on GDP with Chicago. Places that are booming ahead like Dallas, Houston, Seattle and Washington DC are still gaining GDP at a sheer volume less than Chicago. Percent wise it's more varied.

Also keep in mind that the HQ for McDonald's moved from DuPage County, IL to Cook County in 2018. Mondelez HQ is moving from Lake County to Cook County next year I think. These should increase Cook County more. Caterpillar also moved its HQ from outside of the Chicago MSA to Lake County, IL in 2018.

I don't know how much contributes to GDP but I'm sure it'll account to a bit of movement.

GDP is a very poor measurement of anything really. If I pay you 10$ to mow my lawn and you pay me 10$ to mow your lawn the GDP has increased by 20$ without any economic value created.

No it's the absolute measure of output and is a major economic indicator.

The Seattle MSA is centered squarely inside King County and its also really large in terms of land area vs. counties back East so its perhaps less exciting than it seems. The MSA level gives a more accurate view of per capita GDP etc.
