Per capita GDP is an important indicator of a region's economic wellbeing. Shenzhen, the first city in China to record per capita GDP hitting $10,000 in 2007, took only six years to double the number to $22,112 in 2013, and retained its crown in 2019.

According to 21st Century Business Herald, per capita GDP is not only related to the total economic volume and employed population size, but also closely ties to the cities' industrial structure. The higher the added value of the industry can generate, the higher output of per capita will be.
