The Seattle region's white collar, tech, and warehouse/logistics sectors are heavily concentrated in King County. In fact so are jobs overall.

OP, thanks for posting. These numbers give the first chance to pinpoint true GDP at the CSA level since you can break down the numbers for every county. In doing so, I added up the CSA numbers.

Here is the top 25 (in current dollar GDP in billions):

1. New York: 1.852.448
2. Los Angeles: 1.151.583
3. San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose: 817.801
4. Chicago: 705.456
5. Washington-Baltimore: 701,801
6. Boston-Providence: 588.103
7. Houston: 481.911
8. Dallas: 477.382
9. Philadelphia: 463.825
10. Atlanta: 377.362
11. Seattle: 364.149
12. Miami: 334.776
13. Detroit: 284.587
14. Minneapolis-St. Paul: 257.796
15. Denver: 226.541
16. Phoenix: 221.811
17. San Diego: 214.056
18. Cleveland-Akron: 198.346
19. Portland: 179.355
20. Indianapolis: 167.962
21. St. Louis: 159.322
22. Charlotte: 158.791
23. Pittsburgh: 152.825
24. Orlando: 143.363
25. Raleigh-Durham: 135.033

Here is the top 25 in overall GDP increase from 2012-15 (plus/minus from overall rank)
1. New York: 199.373 (-)
2. Los Angeles: 169.445 (-)
3. San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose: 167.720 (-)
4. Chicago: 75.853 (-)
5. Boston: 66.133 (+1)
6. Miami: 61.848 (+6)
7. Washington-Baltimore: 59.385 (-2)
8. Dallas: 58.615 (-)
9. Atlanta: 56.285 (+1)
10. Seattle: 55.830 (+1)
11. Philadelphia: 41.113 (-2)
12. Detroit: 34.985 (+1)
13. Denver: 32.383 (+2)
14. Minneapolis: 29.994 (-)
15. Houston: 28.746 (-8)
16. Portland: 26.045 (+3)
17. Charlotte: 25.587 (+5)
18. San Antonio: 24.492 (+16)
19. Phoenix: 24.661 (-3)
20. Cleveland-Akron: 23.022 (-2)
21. San Diego: 22.840 (-4)
22. Sacramento: 20.901 (+6)
23. Austin: 20.504 (+9)
24. Indianapolis: 19.775 (-4)
25. Raleigh-Durham: 19.606 (-)

OP, I don’t see Multnomah County anywhere in your stats. Did you overlook Portland? I’ve read through it a couple times.

I have it at 59.017 .. which puts it between Milwaukee and Duval (Jacksonville, Fla.).

I'm not the OP, but looks like a simple omission because Washington County is listed.

Thank you for noticing that. Indeed I goofed.

Multnomah, OR had a GDP of $59.017 Billion in 2015:

The highlighted cell is the gdp for all industries in 2015.

I hope that they do manage to undo the Great Divorce, but I must confess that it puzzles me that the effort that has the greatest momentum would require everyone in Missouri to sign off on it in a referendum. As I recall reading one critic of Better Together's effort saying, "Why should someone in Kansas City have a say on how St. Louis is governed?"

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
But Philadelphia does remain the region's largest employment center. King of Prussia in Montgomery County is its second-largest, true, and the second-largest edge city on the East Coast after Tysons (Corner) in Virginia.

And the job growth curve in Philadelphia County finally turned upward in the last two to three years.

It did surprise me somewhat to see New Castle County, Del. (Wilmington) rank higher than Jackson County, Mo. But Jackson County includes only the oldest parts of the city of Kansas City, which also extends into Clay, Platte and Cass counties. However: it seems that the other counties have GDPs of under $20 billion. From what I could see, the only two Greater Kansas City counties that have GDPs above that threshold are Jackson in Missouri and Johnson in Kansas.

What this says is that many of our suburbs have ceased to be bedroom communities.
