Gross Domestic Product Per Capita as a Percentage of the U.S. Metro Average, 2013

Loading Data...

Visualization Notes:

A reasonable target is for GDP per capita, a measure of economic well-being, to be within 5 percent of the U.S. metro average in the state’s larger metro areas. In 2013, relative to the national metropolitan average, GDP per capita was 15 percent lower in Metro Phoenix, 32 percent lower in Metro Flagstaff, 36 percent lower in Metro Tucson, and at least 42 percent below average in each of the other four metro areas. The substantial variation in GDP per capita across the metro areas is a result of such factors as industrial mix, household size, and the number of workers per household.
