  15. 19. Definitions for Global Indicators of Development <ul><li>Purchasing Power Parity. This is a comparative measure of the cost of goods in different countries. It is often applied to a ‘basket of goods’. The basket of goods contains a group of basic goods and services that are needed, and the comparison is often made between the numbers of hours needed to work to make enough income to buy this ‘basket of goods’ in different countries. </li></ul>
  16. 20. GDP Per capita <ul><li>Gross Domestic Product per person (per capita). This is the value of all goods and services produced within a country, usually over one year. This is a more useful measure to Geographers, and is the GDP of a country divided by the total population. It is often used as a measure of the relative income of people within different countries. </li></ul>
  17. 21. The State of the World <ul><li>The GDP (Gross Domestic Product) of the poorest 48 nations (i.e. a quarter of the world's countries) is less than the wealth of the world's three richest people combined. </li></ul>
