List of countries by GDP (PPP) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This article is outdated . Please update this article to reflect recent events or newly available information. Please see the talk page for more information. (July 2011) World maps of GDP (PPP), 2010 International Monetary Fund There are three lists of countries of the world sorted by their gross domestic product (GDP) (the value of all final goods and services produced within a nation in a given year). The GDP dollar estimates given on this page are derived from purchasing power parity (PPP) calculations. Using a PPP basis is arguably more useful when comparing generalized differences in living standards on the whole between nations because PPP takes into account the relative cost of living and the inflation rates of the countries, rather than using just exchange rates which may distort the real differences in income. Economies do self-adjust to currency changes over time, and technology intensive and luxury goods, raw materials and energy prices are mostly unaffected by difference in currency (the latter more by subsidies), however this is taken into account by the price comparison surveys, such as the International Comparison Program, which are used as the basis for PPP calculations. These surveys include both tradable and non-tradable goods in an attempt to estimate a representative basket of all goods. [1] Several economies which are not considered to be countries (world, EU, and some dependent territories ) are included in the list because they appear in the sources. These economies are not ranked in the charts here, but are listed in sequence by GDP for comparison. The first table includes data for the year 2010 for 183 of the current 183 International Monetary Fund members and the Republic of China ( Taiwan ), as well as for the following unranked entities: the European Union , China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, and the world . Data are in millions of international dollars and were calculated by the International Monetary Fund. Figures were published in September 2011. The second table includes data for the year 2010 for 178 of the 192 current United Nations member states , the two Chinese Special Administrative Regions (Hong Kong and Macau ), and for the unranked entities of the world and the Eurozone . Data are in millions of international dollars (rounded to the nearest 100 million) and were compiled by the World Bank . Figures were published in July 2011.
