Gross domestic product is the total financial value of all goods and services produced by an economy within a specific period. Economists use the gross domestic product to define an area’s economic health and determine the economy’s size.

The U.S. has the most extensive gross domestic product globally, with China, Japan, Germany, and India rounding out the top five. The U.S.’ GDP had roughly quadrupled since 1990, when it was approximately 5.9 trillion U.S. dollars, to around 21.4 trillion U.S. dollars in 2019.

California had the highest gross domestic product (3,120 trillion U.S. dollars) in the country. In opposition, Vermont had the lowest GDP in the U.S., with about 33 billion U.S. dollars in 2019.
