Terms and Definitions

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is the total market value of all final goods and services produced in a country during a certain period. Typically, GDP is used as an economic indicator to gauge the health and size of a country's economy.

Real GDP is an inflation-adjusted measure of GDP that reflects the value of all goods and services produced in a given year, expressed in base-year prices. It allows for comparisons of economic performance from year to year by eliminating the effects of price changes.

Unlike real GDP, nominal GDP is not adjusted for inflation and it values the economic output during a specific period using the prices in that year. This often results in a higher GDP value due to the impacts of inflation.

GDP per capita is a measure of the average economic output per person in a specific area, such as a country or region. It is obtained by dividing the GDP of a certain area by its total population. It serves as an indicator of living standards or economic well-being.

The GDP growth rate is the percentage increase in GDP from quarter to quarter or year to year. It shows how fast the economy is growing or shrinking. It is used to examine the health of a country's economy.

Consumer spending, also referred to as personal consumption expenditures, is the value of goods and services purchased by or on behalf of households. It is a major component of GDP as it accounts for private consumption in an economy.

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is an investment made by a firm or individual in one country into business interests located in another country. FDI often contributes significantly to GDP, particularly in developing economies.

Exports and imports are key components of a country's international trade. Exports are goods and services produced domestically but sold to other countries. Imports are goods and services purchased from other countries. The relation between these two impacts a country's balance of trade and GDP.

Inflation is the rate at which the general price level of goods and services is rising and purchasing power is falling. It influences the GDP of a country as it affects the cost of goods and services, which in turn affects consumer spending.
