*Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) are defined by commuting patterns in the surrounding counties of a principal city. Each Census cycle, the United States Office of Management and Budget assesses the current MSA delineations and makes adjustments based on the new commuting data from the Census. The Nominal and Real GDP shown in these tables are reflective of the latest MSA definitions and are retroactively calculated. This is in contrast to Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data, such as the Wage and Salary (W&S) Employment under the Employment/Jobs tab. BLS data is reflective of the previous delineations and cannot be compared with GDP data for the new delineations.
