Data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis shows San Francisco's economy last year grew significantly faster than any of the top 10 metro areas in the nation, according to an analysis by SpareFoot Moving Guides.
The San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), ranked seventh in the U.S., generated a gross domestic product dollar value of $406.2 billion in 2016, a 5.4 percent increase from the previous year, the analysis said. Of the other top 10 metro economies, No. 10 Atlanta was closest with a 3.7 percent jump.
With a GDP of $236 billion in 2016, the San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara metro area, 13th-largest in the U.S., saw its economy grow by 5.9 percent. But its economy is just 58 percent the size of San Francisco's, the Sparefoot analysis said.
