Date07 Jun 2017

GDP per capita is calculated by dividing GDP by midyear population. GDP (Gross Domestic Product) is the total market value of all final goods and services produced in a country in a given year. In Nominal method, market exchange rates are used for conversion. To make meaningful comparison, PPP is used to compare economies and incomes of people by adjusting for differences in prices in different countries.

This list contains projected GDP per capita of 190 Countries/Economies in current prices (U.S. dollars) of year 2016 and 2020. Data is based on projection by IMF outlook October 2016. GDP of Pakistan and Egypt is missing in nominal methods. Both data is calculated by interpolation.

GDP per capita of world in 2017 is forecasted at $10,562, its GDP per capita (PPP) is projected at $17,156. Total population of 190 economies is 7.383 billions. Per capita GDP of world is 1.62 times greater in PPP terms compare to nominal terms.

Luxembourg and Qatar would be the richest economy in nominal and PPP, respectively. Malawi and Burundi would be the poorest economy in nominal and PPP, respectively. In exchange rates methods, Per capita wealth of richest economy Luxembourg would be 9.63 times greater than world average, while poorest economy Malawi would be 32.75 times poorer than world average. In PPP, 1st ranked Qatar would be 7.53 times richer and lowest ranked Central African Republic would be 25.06 times poorer.

In nominal data, only Luxembourg would have gdp per capita of above one lakh US dollar. There would be 11 economies which has per capita income above $50,000. 39 has above $20,000 and 66 has above $10,000. 64 economies has per capita income greater than world's average. Ten economies would be above five times more richer than world. 31 poorest would be poorer by more than ten times.

In ppp data, Qatar and Luxembourg would have gdp per capita of above one lakh US dollar. There would be 18 economies which has per capita income above $50,000. 66 has above $20,000 and 109 has above $10,000. 79 economies has per capita income greater than world's average. Four economies would be above five times more richer than world. 14 poorest would be poorer by more than ten times.

There are much differences in ranking of economies between these two basis. Azerbaijan is highest gainer in ppp rank compare to its nominal rank. Rank of Azerbaijan is up by 35 place from 112th in nominal to 77th in ppp. Azerbaijan is followed by Islamic Republic of Iran (33). Next in line comes Brunei Darussalam (26) and Saudi Arabia (24).
