A new report shows the Sacramento region's 3.1 percent rise in its gross domestic product last year was more than double the national average of 1.5 percent.

The report comes from the Palo Alto based Center for the Continuing Study of the California Economy.

GDP growth was led in the Sacramento area by finance and professional services.

The region consists of Sacramento, Yolo, Placer, Sutter, Yuba and El Dorado Counties.

The report showed the San Joaquin Valley's GDP grew by 2.5 percent last year -- again well above the national average.
