GDP Data for State, MSAs, and Counties
The broadest measure of economic activity is the gross domestic product (GDP). Gross Domestic Product by State (GSP) measures the value-added from industries in that state. According to estimates from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2021, Missouri ranked 22nd nationally in GSP at $295.73 billion in inflation-adjusted dollars, a 4.6 percent increase from 2020 to 2021. Nationally inflation-adjusted GDP increased 5.7 percent over the same period.
The Missouri Economic Research and Information Center (MERIC) analyzes Gross Domestic Product (GDP) data at the state, metropolitan statistical area (MSA), and county level. Gross Domestic Product by MSA measures the percentage of contribution by metropolitan statistical areas to Missouri's total GDP. This data comes from the Bureau of Economic Analysis and is presented in both real dollars (adjusted for inflation) and current dollars (not adjusted for inflation).
County GDP Data provides the contribution of Missouri counties to the state’s total GDP. This data is available in both real dollars (adjusted for inflation) and current dollars (not adjusted for inflation).
