Headline Gross Regional Product (GRP) is a measure of size or net wealth generated by the local economy. Changes in this figure over time can represent changes in employment, productivity or the types of industries in the area.
Local Industry GRP shows the value of the local economy, generated by the local workers within the area regardless of where they live, after taxes and dividends leave the area. It is best thought of as GRP produced by local industries.
Local Residents GRP refers to the economic output of the residents of the area regardless of where they work. It is best thought of as the income received by people in the City. If the Residents GRP is high relative to the Local Industry GRP, this indicates that residents are contributing their economic productivity to other areas (most likely commuting out).
To understand the relative size of these measures and reasons behind the differences, GRP data should be viewed in conjunction with Jobs to workers ratio and Employment self-containment datasets. To understand the main contributors to GRP, this dataset should be viewed in conjunction with industry Value added.
