Methodology & Data Sources
ECONOMIC HEALTH

Assessing Butte County’s economic vitality and its contributions to the California economy.

Butte County’s overall economic health can be measured across several indicators: employment, gross value of critical industry and the County’s GDP, as well as revenue generated.

Unemployment and employment rates offer an immediate reference point for the overall economic health of the County, helping to shed light on the strength of the local jobs market.

Though GDP reflects the overall economic output of the County, additional indicators like gross value of agricultural products–a critical industry of Butte County–and value of non-residential permits issued, round out a more nuanced snapshot of output.

Lastly, taxable sales help demonstrate the strength of revenue generated by the County.
