+ the Swiss metro areas. The Swiss statistical office has at long last started publishing regional GDP figures for Switzerland, so we can finally have some figures for the Swiss metro areas, and boy they don't disappoint!

Unfortunately the figures are only available at canton level. In the case of Zurich, it gives a good idea of the GDP per capita of the Zurich metro area (the figure is a little bit inflated by some commuters coming from the Canton of Aarau, where the GDP per capita is $73,751, but not by very much, since most of the Zurich metro area is contained within the Canton of Zurich).

However, in the case of Basel and above all Geneva, the figures are greatly inflated by commuters coming from neighboring areas. In the case of Basel, there are commuters coming from the French department of Haut-Rhin (whose GDP per capita is $35,365) and from the Swiss cantons of Solothurn (whose GDP per capita is $68,098) and Aarau ($73,751). In case of Geneva, there are commuters coming from the French department of Haute-Savoie (whose GDP per capita is $37,010), the French department of Ain (whose GDP per capita is $33,247), and the Swiss canton of Vaud (whose GDP per capita is $75,997).

It is not possible to give more precise figures for Geneva and Basel, because there exist not GDP figures for the French communes and for the Swiss districts (below the canton level).

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)
