This analysis was completed by Bloomberg using the US Bureau of Economic Analysis data for the 100 largest metropolitan areas in 2014. Gross Metropolitan Product (GMP) was clearly much higher in high-tech areas, with San Jose ranking number one nationwide. This reflects an ongoing trend showing that densely populated areas with educated, skilled, workers are compensated at much higher rates than the national averages. Income in these areas is expected to continue to increase, unless housing costs rise too high or the standard of living declines.
