Countries by nominal GNI per capita according to the Atlas method (2016)

Contents

MethodologyEdit

The GNI per capita is the dollar value of a country’s final income in a year, divided by its population. It should be reflecting the average before tax income of a country’s citizens.

Knowing a country’s GNI per capita is a good first step toward understanding the country’s economic strengths and needs, as well as the general standard of living enjoyed by the average citizen. A country’s GNI per capita tends to be closely linked with other indicators that measure the social, economic, and environmental well-being of the country and its people. For example, generally people living in countries with higher GNI per capita tend to have longer life expectancies, higher literacy rates, better access to safe water, and lower infant mortality rates.

All data is in United States dollars. Rankings shown are those given by the World Bank. Non-sovereign entities or other special groupings are marked in italics.
