Unexpectedly Intriguing!
May 27, 2005

Update 16 Dec 2005: The 2004 edition is now available!

Welcome to Africa! Today's dynamic GDP table presents data for the entire African continent minus Western Sahara, for which no economic data is available. You may rank the data by clicking upon the column heads. If you're interested in comparing this data against individual states in the U.S., you may do so by looking at this dynamic table, which allow you to sort individual U.S. states according to their 2002 Gross State Product (GSP), the state equivalent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

As with Political Calculations' other looks at international GDP data, the data in the table below has been adjusted for each country's Purchasing Power Parity, which takes into account how much an individual can buy within a country along with the currency exchange rate between the individual country's currency and the U.S. dollar. This allows for a more direct comparison between countries with different rates of exchange in their currencies, as well as what their currencies are capable of buying within their own countries.
