GDP stands for Gross Domestic Product. A nation's Gross Domestic Product refers to the value of all final goods and services produced within a nation in a given year. To prevent distortions, a system called purchasing power parity (PPP) is used to calculate the GDP estimates. The PPP method involves the use of standardized international dollar price weights to determine the value goods and services produced in a given economy. The amounts listed below are in billions of U.S. dollars.
