National Power scores are the product of an index combining the weighted factors of GDP, defense spending, population, and technology. Scores are calculated by the International Futures computer model and are expressed as a state’s relative share (percentage) of all global power.

The forecast of these values is hosted by the Google Public Data Explorer.[1] Graphs for any country and some regional groupings can be produced to 2060 for the International Futures Base Case or scenarios produced for the United Nations Environment Programme Global Environmental Outlook 4.

In a ranking combining many more variables (GDP, current account balance, public finances, number of Global 500 corporations, nuclear protection, manpower fit for military service, military expenditures, military power projection, size of diplomatic network, UN membership, permanent UN Security Council membership, number of patents and industrial designs, official development aid, BBC Attitudes towards Countries poll[2]) in 2010 EU scored 0.961 and US 0.924 and in 2011 EU scored 0.954[3] and US 0.904.[4]
