Purchasing parity GDP, Geographically based Economic data (G-Econ)

This download package contains Purchasing parity GDP for 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, and a calculation of % change per year between 1990 and 2005. The original datasets from http://gecon.yale.edu/ come as a set of point data in an excel spreadsheet. We have converted these into raster images at 5km resolution clipped to the EDENext Extent.

    The G-Econ research project is devoted to developing a geophysically based data set on economic activity for the world. The current data set (GEcon 4.0) is now publicly available and covers "gross cell product" for all regions for 1990, 1995, 2000, and 2005 and includes 27,500 terrestrial observations. The basic metric is the regional equivalent of gross domestic product. Gross cell product (GCP) is measured at a 1-degree longitude by 1-degree latitude resolution at a global scale. Updates will be posted as they become available. The project staff is Professor William Nordhaus, Yale University, and Professor Xi Chen, Quinnipiac University. Source contacts are william.nordhaus@yale.edu and xi.chen@quinnipiac.edu. (Last revision, May 2011)
