The Most Productive Countries in the World

Methodology

To identify the most productive countries in the world, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the countries with the highest GDP per person employed in 2018 from the World Bank. Population statistics were obtained from the World Bank and are as of 2018.

GDP per person employed is gross domestic product (GDP) divided by total employment in the economy. Purchasing power parity (PPP) GDP is GDP converted to 2011 constant international dollars using PPP rates. An international dollar has the same purchasing power over GDP that a U.S. dollar has in the United States.
