The publication presents the detailed results of the 2011
International Comparison Programme (ICP). The ICP is a worldwide
statistical initiative that aims to estimate Purchasing Power
Parities (PPPs) to be used as currency converters to compare the
size and price levels of economies around the world. The program
involved 199 economies from eight geographic regions: Africa, Asia
and the Pacific, Commonwealth of Independent States, Latin America,
the Caribbean, Western Asia, Pacific Islands, and the countries of
the regular PPP programme managed by the Organisation for Economic
Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the Statistical Office of
the European Communities (Eurostat). The work reported herein was
conducted by national implementing agencies that collected the
necessary data in each economy; the regional coordination agencies
that supported country activities, compiled the results and
produced regional estimates; and the ICP Global Office, which
coordinated and managed the work at the global level. The 2011 ICP
results form a crucial information base for research in comparative
analysis and policy making. They include PPPs and real expenditure
values for GDP and its main aggregates for the reference year 2011
for 199 participating economies.
