The San Francisco Bay Area’s GDP

The San Francisco Bay Area, commonly known as the Bay Area, is a metropolitan region that surrounds the San Francisco and San Pablo estuaries in Northern California. The region encompasses metropolitan areas such as San Francisco-Oakland (12th largest in the country), San Jose (31st largest in the country), along with smaller urban and rural areas. Overall, the Bay Area consists of nine counties, 101 cities, and 7,000 square miles. The nine counties are Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma. The United States Census Bureau considers the Bay Area a Combined Statistical Area (CSA) with approximately 7.4 million people, including the nine counties bordering San Francisco Bay as well as Santa Cruz and San Benito Counties, making it the sixth largest CSA in the United States.

In the ten year period between 2001 and 2011, the Bay Area saw its GDP grow considerably. In 2001, GDP was 245.09 billion U.S. dollars. This value rose to 500.71 billion U.S. dollars by 2017. Additionally, California ranked first on a list of U.S. states by GDP, with more than two trillion U.S. dollars in GDP in 2017. Silicon Valley, located in the Bay Area, is in great part responsible for the Bay Area’s and California’s high GDPs, as it is known as the center of the global technology industry. Companies like Google, Facebook, eBay and Apple are headquartered there.
