These figures are the latest available from national and multilateral sources (telephone data from Intl. Telecom. Union). These statistics will appear only occasionally: GDP (PPP), savings, foreign debt, literacy rate, urban population, people per doctor, infant mortality, people per TV and calorie intake. Gross domestic product (GDP) is the value of all goods and services produced in one year. Purchasing Power Parity (PPP, based on World Bank ratios) takes into account price differences between countries, for a more accurate measure of national wealth. Gross National Product (GNP) is GDP plus payments from abroad from investments and labor, minus similar payments to foreigners.
