## Economy Statistics > GDP (per capita) (most recent) by country

DEFINITION: This entry gives the gross domestic product (GDP) or value of all final goods and services produced within a nation in a given year. A nation's GDP at purchasing power parity (PPP) exchange rates is the sum value of all goods and services produced in the country valued at prices prevailing in the United States. This is the measure most economists prefer when looking at per-capita welfare and when comparing living conditions or use of resources across countries. The measure is difficult to compute, as a US dollar value has to be assigned to all goods and services in the country regardless of whether these goods and services have a direct equivalent in the United States (for example, the value of an ox-cart or non-US military equipment); as a result, PPP estimates for some countries are based on a small and sometimes different set of goods and services. In addition, many countries do not formally participate in the World Bank's PPP project that calculates these measures, so the resulting GDP estimates for these countries may lack precision. For many developing countries, PPP-based GDP measures are multiples of the official exchange rate (OER) measure. The difference between the OER- and PPP-denominated GDP values for most of the weathly industrialized countries are generally much smaller. Per capita figures expressed per 1 population.

 Deepak Francis 9th January 2012 Excellent and useful data manju 3rd June 2011 It is so outdated. Jenny 15th May 2009 Excellent depth of stats here, but I do find the site a bit hard to use. There is a new service which doesn't yet have much data, but which I have found easier to use. It includes analysis of economic figures as well as the data. You can find it here: http://www.economywatch.com/economic-statistics/ Nayef Aldosari (Qatar) 4th November 2006 Qatar's GDP per capita figure is outdated. The current figure (2005)is \$49,655
