City GDP

The other day I had the need to find some GDP data for cities. It surprises me that urban agglomerations are one of the core features of human economic life yet so much of the statistics agenda of national agencies has so little to do with human settlements.

The best source I came across for the data I was seeking was the OECD book (2006) Competitive cities in the world economy, but its cut off was higher than a couple of cities I was after.

For simply population data etc for urban areas there are a couple of websites that are interesting.

For information on statistical collections and administrative borders could be useful.
