(STACKER) — One of the strongest indicators of a country’s economic capacity and productivity is its gross domestic product, or GDP. GDP represents the total market value of economic goods and services over the course of a year, calculated by adding gross investment, private consumption, government investment, government spending, and trade exports, less imports.

In 2017, the United States’ GDP reached a staggering $19.39 trillion, the largest in the world and 4.1% higher than 2016’s figure, $18.62 trillion.

While the United States clearly stands out among countries for this measure of economic strength, Stacker set out to discover how GDP varies from state to state. Using data computed by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, Stacker analyzed the per capita GDP for every state plus Washington, D.C. Check out how Virginia ranked compared to the other top 25 states on the list.

The statistics are represented in chained 2009 dollars to account for inflation, include both public and private industries, and represent the total GDP divided by each state’s population.
