The GDP (PPP) per hour worked is a measure of the productivity of a country when not taking into account unemployment or hours worked per week. GDP (PPP) stands for gross domestic product normalised to purchasing power parities.

Methodology[edit]

The data of the following list comes from The Conference Board.[1] GDP is measured in purchasing power parity, normalised to 2013 US dollar (comparable to a 2013 international dollar). It is calculated from 2005 EKS PPP estimates from Penn World Tables (PWT 7), updated with GDP deflator changes. Work is measured as hours actually worked during the year in employee and self-employment jobs.[2]

The data of the following list comes from the Center for International Comparisons at the University of Pennsylvania (CICUP).[3] Nominal GDP is converted to "real GDP" (in PWT meaning PPP-corrected GDP[4]) by using an index based on price sets of 2005, giving 2005 international dollar. Work is measured as hours worked by employees in 2005.[5]
