That is some interesting data, I'm sure it will spark some debate. Hartford is a national insuarance center isn't it? Also - it is nice to see some bad press plagued cities are still major economic forces, such as Buffalo ranked #11 in the per capita list.

Wow! I have to say I'm shocked in Grand Rapids' GMP - per capita ranking! Does anyone know what would drive a per capita "ranking" to be so high? How does one region's per capita outperform others? Level or value of services or products sold?

I'm not as surprised to see New Orleans on there, but I was rather surprised to See Baton Rouge on this list. And I'm with GRDadof3... Grand Rapids' position is shocking, but not in a bad way. I think it shows the true strength of the market.

My guess is that Albany and Harrisburg rank high due to the fact they are both state capitals in large states but are relatively small cities. The amount of government related jobs and their offshoots required for such large states obviously bolster the economy of these two smaller cities.

The same is probably true for Washington DC, only on a national level.

Doesn't really explain away the high showings of the other upstate NY cities though.

I'm not getting this at all. Places like Syracuse are notorious for being economically flat and being struggling cities. What gives?

Their output is still relatively high but they are doing it with much fewer jobs and many people have moved out. The per capita numbers become inflated then.

Per capita means per person. If a company downsizes their workforce, they may produce the same amount of goods, i.e. they they are flat, but the goods per person rises.

Places with rapidly growing populations, may have a lower per capita income.

I wonder how much Boston's ranking has to do with the rising costs of two of its major products--health care and education.
