As requested by some, I'm adding the North American metro areas.

For the US, I'm giving the richest and poorest metro areas of more than 250,000 inhabitants, plus some large metro areas that are neither the richest nor the poorest. I'm using the new definitions of the CSAs. When there is a significant difference with the old CSA definition, I'm indicating it in parenthesis. For some metro areas, we only have the MSA figure (because the CSA is made up of just one MSA + some tiny micropolitan areas for which there are no GDP data).

For Canada, we have GDP figures only for the metro areas of Québec, courtesy of the national statistical office of Québec. For the other provinces, I'm only indicating the provincial GDP. Note that in Alberta, contrary to most other places, the GDP per capita of the two main cities, Calgary and Edmonton, is probably lower than the provincial GDP per capita, because the provincial GDP per capita is boosted by oil production which doesn't take place in those two metro areas.


GDP per capita in 2011 (in US dollars, at market exchange rates, not at purchasing power parity):
- Canton of Geneva: $118,721 (figure inflated by commuters coming from neighboring areas in France and Switzerland)
- Canton of Zurich: $104,733
- cantons of Basel-Stadt & Basel-Land + German district of Lörrach: $93,436 (figure inflated by commuters coming from neighboring areas in Switzerland and France)

- Oslo metro area: between $84,000 and $94,000 (depending on the definition of the metro area)
