Highlights of the Purchasing Power Parity Preliminary Report: 2005 International Comparison Program in Asia and the Pacific
Asian Development Bank | July 2007
This Highlights summarizes the Purchasing Power Parity Preliminary Report, which presents estimates of purchasing power parities (PPPs) for 23 economies participating in the 2005 International Comparison Program in Asia and the Pacific. These PPPs, disaggregated by major macroeconomic variables, enable a robust cross-country comparison to provide a snapshot of Asia and the Pacific region in 2005. The PPP variables include per capita real gross domestic product that identifies which economies are rich, real per capita actual final consumption of households that measures economic well-being, gross fixed capital formation that reflects investment, and price level indices that indicate relative cost of living by economy.
