GDP and PPP in Central America

Central America is comprised the seven nations of Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama.

The combined GDP of these tropical nations is a total of $165,400 million USD according to the CIA World Factbook. Let’s put that in perspective.

Canada had a GDP of approximately $1,759,000 million USD in 2011, or more than 10 times the total GDP of these seven nations. The GDP of these nations very closely matches the GDPs of Ukraine, Peru, and New Zealand.

As a region, Central America tops only Ukraine from the previous chart in terms of per capita earnings. The average GDP per capita for the seven nations was $7,643 in 2011 according to the CIA World Factbook.

Now those nations are compared to four nations of very similar GDPs for perspective.

While Liechtenstein sits at the top of the world with a GDP per capita of $141,000, the global average is closer to $8,000.

Here is a breakdown of that combined Central American GDP of $165,400 million USD.
