Unexpectedly Intriguing!
May 20, 2005

Update (11 January 2005): What could be better than looking at 2002 GDP data for Europe? How about looking at 2004 data for the entire European Union!

We are coming something of a full circle today, since I began looking at GDP in various regions of the world after a noting a report comparing the GDP per capita of the nations of Western Europe and individual states in the U.S. Today's dynamic GDP table presents data for the whole of Europe - 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).

The GDP 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.
