Penn World Tables (PWT) is a database with information on relative levels of income, output, input and productivity, covering 183 countries between 1950 and 2019.

For over four decades, the Penn World Table (PWT) has been a standard source of data on real GDP across countries. Making use of prices collected across countries in benchmark years by the International Comparisons Program (ICP), and using these prices to construct purchasing-power-parity (PPP) exchange rates, PWT converts gross domestic product (GDP) at national prices to a common currency— US dollars—making them comparable across countries.

The central element of the Penn World Tables has always been real GDP per capita, a measure of relative living standards across countries at different points in time. This measure requires two main pieces of information, namely GDP per capita in national currency and purchasing power parities (PPPs) to correct for differences in prices across countries.

Other Indicators

Consumption Indicators

The following two indicators help to provide information about the composition of consumption among countries each year.

Penn World Tables' Dashboard

Living Standards Indicators

The following indicators are usefull for comparing living standards across countries each year and their per capita growth rates.

Capital Stock and Productivity Indicators

These indicators are usefull to compare productive capacity, productivity and their growth among countries each year, which provides a closer insight to understand why living standards and/or their gwoth rates are higher some countries than in others.

The Penn World Tables (PWT) is a database that provides a standardized set of macroeconomic data for over 190 countries from 1950 to the present. The PWT is designed to provide a means for comparing economic performance across countries and over time. The database is maintained by the Center for International Comparisons of Production, Income and Prices (CICP) at the University of Pennsylvania.
