A set of comparable international price and volume measures of gross domestic products (GDP) and expenditure aggregates for 199 countries that participated in the 2011 round of International Comparison Program (ICP) and estimates for 15 non-participating countries. The data covers 26 expenditures categories for goods and services, and several indicators including purchasing power parities (PPPs), expenditure shares of GDP, total and per capita expenditures in US dollar both in exchange rate terms and PPP terms, and price level Indices.

Universal health coverage (UHC) means that all people can obtain the health services they need without suffering financial hardship. The 2017 UHC Global Monitoring Report looks at how many people globally lack access to essential health services and how many are pushed into poverty or spending too much of their household budgets on out-of-pocket health expenses.
Total wealth is calculated by summing up estimates of each component of wealth: produced capital, natural capital, human capital, and net foreign assets. The construction of the wealth accounts is guided by the concepts and methods of the System of National Accounts (SNA), the handbook developed by the UN Statistical Commission used by virtually all countries to compile their national economic accounts. While values for produced capital and net foreign assets are generally derived from widely used methods based on observed transactions for these assets, the value of natural capital and human capital must be estimated. The approach to asset valuation is based on the concept that the value of an asset should equal the discounted stream of expected net earnings (resource rents or wages) that it earns over its lifetime.
Economic Fitness (EF) is both a measure of a country’s diversification and ability to produce complex goods on a globally competitive basis. Countries with the highest levels of EF have capabilities to produce a diverse portfolio of products, ability to upgrade into ever-increasing complex goods, tend to have more predictable long-term growth, and to attain good competitive position relative to other countries. Countries with low EF levels tend to suffer from poverty, low capabilities, less predictable growth, low value-addition, and trouble upgrading and diversifying faster than other countries. The comparison of the Fitness to the GDP reveals hidden information for the development and the growth of the countries.
