Unexpectedly Intriguing!
June 17, 2005

Update (11 January 2005): The 2004 GDP Rankings for Asia are now available!

The Far East. The Orient. The Subcontinent. The Near East. These are all alternative names for the regions of the world that are home to some of the world's most rapidly growing economic juggernauts: Asia. Today's dynamic GDP table focuses upon the nations of Asia, taking their 2002 Gross Domestic Product (GDP) data adjusted for each country's Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) and their estimated population as of July 2003, and then provides their related GDP per Capita (also adjusted for PPP.) You may rank the nations in the table below according to the different categories by selecting the individual column heads:
