About the product

The emphasis of this important study is the use of alternative conversion rates in measuring the distribution of gross world product between countries and regions and its changes over time. The conversion rates include market exchange rates (MERS) published by the IMF, purchasing power parities (PPPs) used by the World Bank and price adjusted rates of exchange (PAREs) developed by the Statistical Division of the United Nations Secretariat.
