The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) estimates at purchaser values (market prices) are in 1997 U.S. dollars (based on 1997 exchange rates), and are the sum of GDP at factor cost (value added in the agriculture, industry, and services sectors) and indirect taxes, less subsidies. World Bank GDP estimates are in accord with the United Nations System of National Accounts. GDP measures the total output of goods and services for final use occurring within the domestic territory of a given country, regardless of the allocation to domestic and foreign claims. Gross domestic product at purchaser values (market prices) is the sum of gross value added by all resident and nonresident producers in the economy plus any taxes and minus any subsidies not included in the value of the products. It is calculated without making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or for depletion and degradation of natural resources. Data are in current U.S. dollars. Dollar figures for GDP are converted from domestic currencies using single year official exchange rates. For a few countries where the official exchange rate does not reflect the rate effectively applied to actual foreign exchange transactions, an alternative conversion factor is used. Population data come from the United Nations (U.N.) Population Division, Annual Populations 1950--2050 (The 1998 Revision), on diskette (U.N., New York, 1999). Population refers to the midyear population. Most data are estimates based on population censuses and surveys. All projections are for the medium-case scenario. The values are estimated using demographic models based on several kinds of demographic parameters: a country's population size, age and sex distribution, fertility and mortality rates by age and sex groups, growth rates of urban and rural populations, and the levels of internal and international migration.

The data is only aggregated if at least 75 % of the observations are available (i.e. % of population or % of area or % of countries) on an annual basis.
The value "-9999" corresponds to "No Data".

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita is gross domestic product divided by midyear
population. GDP is the sum of gross value added by all resident producers in the economy plus
any product taxes and minus any subsidies not included in the value of the products. It is
calculated without making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or for depletion and
degradation of natural resources. Data are in constant 1995 US.$.
