Recent Revisions of San Diego GDP Shows Uneasy Economic Recovery Lagging
NUSIPR, November 20, 2013 - SAN DIEGO, CALIF. (November 19, 2013) -- While analysis of recently released (and revised) federal figures show San Diego's regional economy has grown the past two years, the recovery remains lackluster. The National University System Institute for Policy Research (NUSIPR) finds San Diego's gross domestic product (GDP) grew 2.7 percent in 2012 reaching $177.4 billion. This was the strongest increase of local economic production since 2005 prior to the onset of the 2007-09 recession, but it lags recovery seen in other regions as well as in the state.

Rebounding San Diego International Trade
NUSIPR, April 29, 2013 - International trade has long been a major driver of San Diego's economic prosperity. The value of two-way trade through San Diego grew to more than $56.5 billion in 2012, a 7.2 percent increase over 2011. This new record exceeded previous highs set in 2007 and 2008. Following an 18 percent drop of value in 2009, San Diego's international trade has now rebounded three consecutive years by 27 percent. Adjusted for inflation, the amount in "real" dollars is still not quite the record levels established between 2006 and 2008, but the rebound represents a significant positive development for the regional economy. Mexico continues to dominate international trade accounting for 86 percent of San Diego's total two-way trade. Continue reading »
