Here’s an awesome map from the cost-estimating website Fixr that illustrates the scale of each state’s GDP and GDP per capita.

Real GDP ranged from California’s $2.11 trillion to Vermont’s $27.2 billion, while real GDP per capita ranged from Alaska’s $66,160 to Mississippi’s $32,551. DC trumped all the states in GDP per capita with a massive $175,253.

“Interestingly, both the highest and the lowest states in terms of GDP per capita experienced negative GDP growth rates in 2014,” according to Fixr. “This goes to show that a state’s economic circumstances can quickly change.”

It’s also worth noting that there isn’t necessarily a correlation between large GDPs and large GDPs per capita. For example, North Dakota has a relatively small GDP, but has a high GDP per capita, while Florida has a relatively large GDP, but small GDP per capita.
