General Description
Abstract:
Gross Domestic Product (GDP) PPP is gross domestic product converted to international dollars using Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) rates. An international dollar has the same purchasing power over GDP as the U.S. dollar in the United States. 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. GDP 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 international dollars Data are from the World Development Indicators 2001 CD-ROM http://www.worldbank.org/data
Purpose:
This indicator represents the number of currency units required to buy goods equivalent to what can be bought with one unit of the currency of the base country or with one unit of the common currency of a group of countries. Also referred to as Purchasing Power Standard. The PPP may be calculated over all of GDP, but also at levels of aggregation, like capital formation.

Comments:
Several values are calculated by linear extrapolations and interpolations; they are exclusively used for the regional/subregional and global aggregations. The data is recalculated from Current US$ used in the World Development Indicators 2001. Current US$ is based on the World Bank's currency index for the period 1970 to 2010 with the base year 1995.
