Glossary of Selected Financial Terms:

GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT (GDP): Gross domestic product is the most commonly used single measure of a country's overall economic activity. It represents the total value of final goods and services produced within a country during a specified time period, such as one year.

GROSS NATIONAL PRODUCT (GNP) or GROSS NATIONAL INCOME (GNI): The GNP was formerly used as a measure of a country's overall economic activity, equal to the GDP less compensation of employees and property income payable to the rest of the world plus the corresponding items receivable from the rest of the world; the GNP has been renamed gross national income (GNI) in the System of National Accounts.

GNI pc: GNI per capita is the gross national income, converted to U.S. dollars using the World Bank Atlas method, divided by the midyear population. Formerly GNP per capita, GNI is the sum of value added by all resident producers plus any product taxes (less subsidies) not included in the valuation of output plus net receipts of primary income (compensation of employees and property income) from abroad. "p.c." is "per capita", Latin term that means per unit of population.

NOTE: According to the World Bank categories, Nations with per capita income (PCI) less than $935 are 'low income;' nations with PCI from $936 to $3,705 are 'lower middle income;' those with PCI from $3,706 to $11,455 are 'upper middle income;' and those with PCI from $11,456 or more are 'high income.' For list of countries sorted by GNI, on mobile phones, see the Wapedia.
