Here’s an interactive visualization that illustrates the growth in Gross Domestic Product by state and region. Dollar amounts are in chained 2005 dollars to eliminate the effects of inflation. Each state or region is indexed to start at 100% so we can see the relative rates of growth.
The top two charts show the growth in GDP for government, and then for the private sector. The bottom chart shows growth in GDP per capita (per person).
