This is a list of South Korean regions by GDP. All data are sourced from the latest regional statistics published by the South Korean Government[1][2] and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).[3][4] The South Korean won has been converted to the international dollar using the IMF's Purchasing Power Parity conversion rate. Note that the 2008 SNA was applied by the South Korean government when calculating the GDP, which is different from the older methodology used by the IMF.[5]
