This page is a list of the countries of the world by gross domestic product (at purchasing power parity) per capita, i.e., the purchasing power parity (PPP) value of all final goods and services produced within a country in a given year, divided by the average (or mid-year) population for the same year.   Data: Information on the distribution and growth of household income across countries. Geographical coverage: 23 countries. Time span: Data coverage differs by country – for some countries data goes back to while coverage is shorter for some other countries. Data is currently available for some countries until The global income distribution for high-income countries This paper presents the global income distribution between all individuals living in the developed world. Global inequality for the group of high-income countries, as measured by the Gini coefficient, stands at 37 in and has increased by almost 3 Gini points since the mids.

Economic development, the process whereby simple, low-income national economies are transformed into modern industrial gh the term is sometimes used as a synonym for economic growth, generally it is employed to describe a change in a country’s economy involving qualitative as well as quantitative theory of economic development—how primitive and poor. Each year on July 1, the analytical classification of the world's economies based on estimates of gross national income (GNI) per capita for the previous year is revised. As of 1 July , low-income economies are defined as those with a GNI per capita, calculated using the . One criterion that is often used is gross national income (GNI) per capita – the dollar value of a country’s final income in a year, divided by its population .

It gives a comprehensive survey of the link between income distribution and the growth of national income, bringing out major patterns and trends, and concluding that there is still considerable scope for growth with equity in by: 5 component of national income.1 Another complementary IV is trade-weighted world income (TWWI), the weighted sum of world income for each country, with time-invariant weights varying across countries depending on their trade Size: KB.

Summary: Does the distribution of income within a country become more equal as it grows richer. This paper uses plausibly exogenous variations in trade-weighted world income and international oil price shocks as instruments for within-country variations in countries real GDP per capita to examine this issue for a large sample of advanced and developing : Markus Bruckner, Era Dabla-Norris, Mark Gradstein.

A further potential concern with the instruments is that trade affects a country’s income distribution beyond its effect on GDP per capita (a similar concern is discussed in Acemoglu et al.where TWWI is used as an instrument for national income; Acemoglu et al.’s endeavor is to examine whether income has a causal effect on democracy).).

Second, if there are patterns, are there any systematic differences across low and middle-income country samples (that we can use to signify transitions) in the relationships between national income, distribution and poverty.

[Excerpt] This book by R. Sundrum, a professor at the Australian National University and former director of the World Bank, is a compilation of issues, ideas, and data on income distribution in less developed countries (LDCs). Each chapter or section has something meaningful to say, and for this reason the book bears careful study.

The National Income is a vital macroeconomic variable which determines the business level and economic status of the nation. The level of national income determines the aggregate demand of goods and services while its distribution defines the pattern of aggregate demand, i.e., what kinds of goods and services are produced and demanded.

Determinants of National Income or Factors Affecting the National Income. There are many determinants or factors which influence the size of the national income. They, in brief, are as follows: (i) The stock of factors of production: One of the very important factors which influences the size of the national income is the quality and quantity of the country's stock of factors of production.

the World Bank's primary business is providing loans and policy advice to low- and middle-income member countries, it classifies nations into three major economic categories: low-income economies (a GNI per capita of $ or less in ), middle-income economies (a GNI per capita between $ and $11, in ), and high-income economies (a GNI per capita of $11, or more in ).

In Table average levels of per capita national income are given separately for low, middle and high income countries of the world. Table reveals that, a large development gap exists between low income countries (with $ 1, PPP or less) and high income developed countries (with $ 12, PPP or above) in   National income accounting systems allow countries to assess the current standard of living or the distribution of income within a population.

This is: Income from people in jobs and in self-employment (e.g. wages and salaries) + Profits of private sector businesses + Rent income from the ownership of land = Gross Domestic product (by sum of factor.

Keynesian Theory of Income and Employment: Definition and Explanation: John Maynard Keynes was the main critic of the classical macro economics. He in his book 'General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money' out-rightly rejected the Say's Law of Market that supply creates its own demand.

He severely criticized A.C. Pigou's version that cuts in real wages help in promoting employment in the. It deals with aggregates like national income, general price level and national output, etc.

Its central problem is price determination and allocation of resources. Its central problem is determination of level of income and employment.

Its main tools are demand and supply of particular commodity/factor. Download file to see previous pages Data was collected by the World Bank Organisation about the Gross National Income, expressed in purchasing power parity dollars to adjust for price level differences across countries.

The data is not adjusted for inflation. There are values for each year from for each country. The numbers are measured in millions of dollars.Generally, the national income and per capita income is very low due to low rate of savings. Therefore, the governments of such countries through forced savings pushes the rate of investment and capital formation which in turn accelerates the rate of economic development.
