Details

The Penn World Table provides purchasing power parity and national income accounts converted to international prices for 188 countries for some or all of the years 1950--2004. The European Union or the OECD provide more detailed purchasing power and real product estimates for their countries and the World Bank makes current price estimates for most PWT countries at the GDP level.

This version contains data from PWT version 6.2. As far as possible the original data from PWT has been preserved. For example, percentages have been maintained rather than converted to fractions.
