With an economic gross metropolitan product of almost $1 trillion in 2017, the Los Angeles-Orange County metropolitan area ranks second among the nation's 351 metropolitan economies (second only to the New York metropolitan area) and ranks ahead of all but three U.S. states (California, Texas and New York). If the LA-Orange County metro area were ranked among the world's 214 independent national economies, it would rank as the 17th largest economy in the world, just behind, among other countries, Mexico, Spain and Australia.
