First Results of the International Comparison Program for Africa
This is the first of two main publications by the African Development Bank Group (AfDB) to provide details of purchasing power parity (PPP) adjusted real GDP expenditures, PPP indices, and price level indices (PLIs) for countries that participated in the International Comparison Program for Africa (ICP-Africa).
The results cover household consumption expenditure except for expenditure on housing services, animal drawn vehicles and maintenance of other major durables for recreation and culture. The other GDP components i.e. gross fixed capital formation, consumption expenditure by government and non-profit institutions will be incorporated in the final results to be published by December 2007.
