.According to the Bureau of Labor Analysis, the Real GDP Per Capita by state is the "Gross Domestic Product of a given area divided by the resident population of the area," and "Real GDP by state is an inflation-adjusted measure of each state's gross product that is based on national prices for the goods and services produced within the state. The real estimates of gross domestic product (GDP) by state are measured in chained (2012) dollars." For more information, see Regional Definitions.
This dataset was recently converted from 2009 chained dollars to 2012 chained dollars as per the updated BEA findings. Chained (2012) dollar series are calculated as the product of the chain-type quantity index and the 2012 current-dollar value of the corresponding series, divided by 100.
