* Notes: Gross domestic product (GDP) is a standardized indicator for a country's economic situation. It reflects the total value of all goods and services produced less the value of goods and services used for intermediate consumption in their production. Expressing GDP in PPS (purchasing power standards) eliminates differences in price levels between countries, and calculation on a per head (per capita) basis allows the comparison of economies significantly different in absolute size.
Number of the poors: poverty thresold was defined as less than 50 % of the per capita median income.
