List of African countries by GDP (PPP) per capita

This is a list of African countries by Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita based on purchasing power parity (PPP). GDP (PPP) per capita and total GDP estimate values are given in international dollars. The highest percentage composition of GDP from a sector of origin (agriculture, industry or services) is bolded. Dependent territories (not sovereign states) have their names in italics and are not ranked.

List of Arab League countries by GDP (PPP)

This is a list of Arab League countries by gross domestic product at purchasing power parity (PPP). Gross domestic product is the value of all final goods and services produced within a nation in a given year.

The table below shows the latest PPP and PPP per capita data for the 22 members of the Arab League. Most figures are from the International Monetary Fund based on statistics from 2017, and are shown in international dollars (Int$). Figures from other sources and years are referenced and noted as such. The GDP per capita for the world is from 2016. Figures for Syria are estimates from 2015, and figures for Palestine are estimates for 2014. The GDP figure for Somalia is an estimate for 2017, and its GDP per capita figure is unavailable.

Countries (or territories) outside the Arab League with roughly equivalent GDP and GDP per capita figures are shown alongside Arab League figures for comparison.

List of Asian countries by GDP per capita

This is a list of Asian countries by GDP per capita based on purchasing power parity. All figures are given in international dollars and are the latest estimates from The World Factbook of the Central Intelligence Agency. Figures are rounded to the nearest hundred. Countries with contiguous boundaries that are partially (but not entirely) located in Asia are shown here in italics, but GDP per capita figures are given for the whole state. Dependent territories (not sovereign states) are not ranked, and are also shown in italics.

List of North American countries by GDP (PPP) per capita

This is a list of North American nations by GDP per capita. All figures are based on the gross domestic product (at purchasing power parity) per capita, i.e., the purchasing power parity (PPP) value of all final goods and services produced within a country in a given year, divided by the average (or mid-year) population for the same year. The figures given are in international dollars and rounded to the nearest hundred. Names of dependent territories (not sovereign states) are in italics and are not ranked.

List of North American countries by GDP (nominal) per capita

This is a list of North American nations ranked by Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita in nominal terms, which are calculated at market or government official exchange rates. The figures provided are 2017 estimates from the IMF

List of OECD countries by GDP per capita

This article includes two lists of Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) member states sorted by their gross domestic product per capita, the value of all final goods and services produced within a nation in a given year, converted to U.S. dollars, divided by the average (or mid-year) population for the same year.

The first table includes data for the years 2012 and 2013 at purchasing power parity levels.

The second table includes data for the years 2012 and 2013 at the current exchange rates.

List of OECD regions by GDP (PPP) per capita

This is a list of OECD regions by GDP (PPP) per capita, a ranking of subnational entities from members of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) by gross domestic product at purchasing power parity prices per capita.

The 381 areas shown below are "territorial level 2" (TL2) regions.

Data are in current 2016 international dollars.

List of South American countries by GDP (PPP) per capita

This is a list of South American nations by gross domestic product per capita based on purchasing power parity. All figures are in current international dollars according to The World Factbook by the Central Intelligence Agency, rounded to the nearest hundred.

List of bordering countries with greatest relative differences in GDP (PPP) per capita

This is a list of bordering countries with the greatest relative differences in GDP (PPP) per person; specifically those pairs of neighbouring countries where the richer country is at least twice as wealthy on a per capita basis than the poorer. These statistics however do not consider differences in other economic indicators that measure welfare, such as their human development index, or inequality within countries.

List of countries by GDP (PPP) per capita

This page is a list of the countries of the world by gross domestic product (at purchasing power parity) per capita, i.e., the purchasing power parity (PPP) value of all final goods and services produced within a country in a given year, divided by the average (or mid-year) population for the same year.

As of 2017, the average GDP per capita (PPP) of all of the countries of the world is US$17,300. For rankings regarding wealth, see list of countries by wealth per adult.

List of countries by GDP (PPP) per person employed

This is a list of countries by their gross domestic product at purchasing power parity per person currently employed.

List of countries by GDP (nominal) per capita

This page lists the countries of the world sorted by their gross domestic product per capita at nominal values. This is the value of all final goods and services produced within a nation in a given year, converted at market exchange rates to current U.S. dollars, divided by the average population for the same year.

The figures presented here do not take into account differences in the cost of living in different countries, and the results vary greatly from one year to another based on fluctuations in the exchange rates of the country's currency. Such fluctuations change a country's ranking from one year to the next, even though they often make little or no difference to the standard of living of its population.

Therefore, these figures should be used with caution. GDP per capita is often considered an indicator of a country's standard of living; although this is problematic because GDP per capita is not a measure of personal income.

Comparisons of national income are also frequently made on the basis of purchasing power parity (PPP), to adjust for differences in the cost of living in different countries. (See List of countries by GDP (PPP) per capita.) PPP largely removes the exchange rate problem but not others; it does not reflect the value of economic output in international trade, and it also requires more estimation than GDP per capita. On the whole, PPP per capita figures are more narrowly spread than nominal GDP per capita figures.

Non-sovereign entities (the world, continents, and some dependent territories) and states with limited international recognition (such as Kosovo, the State of Palestine and Taiwan) are included in the list in cases in which they appear in the sources. These economies are not ranked in the charts here, but are listed in sequence by GDP for comparison. In addition, non-sovereign entities are marked in italics.

Note that the Irish GDP data below is subject to material distortion by the tax planning activities of foreign multinationals in Ireland. 2015 Irish GDP is over 150% of 2015 Irish GNI. To address this, in 2017 the Central Bank of Ireland created "modified GNI" (or GNI*) as a more appropriate statistic, and the OECD and IMF have adopted it for Ireland. 2015 Irish GDP is 143% of 2015 Irish GNI*.

All data are in current United States dollars. Historical data can be found here.

List of countries by GDP (real) per capita growth rate

Figures are shown in U.S. dollars.

List of regions by past GDP (PPP) per capita

These are lists of regions and countries by their estimated real gross domestic product (GDP) per capita in terms of purchasing power parity (PPP), the value of all final goods and services produced within a country/region in a given year divided by population size. GDP per capita dollar (international dollar) estimates here are derived from PPP estimates.
