China: 2,000 Years of Income and Population Growth

China population and GDP per capita

This graph shows the dramatic change in China's population and GDP per capita (especially in the last 200 years). Compare this to the graph of the World that I created earlier.

Data estimates for population and GDP per capita are from Angus Maddison Emeritus Professor, Faculty of Economics, University of Groningen. 1990 international Geary-Khamis dollars are purchasing power parities (PPPs) used to evaluate output which are calculated based on international prices. See United Nations Statistics Division for more information their computation.
