Since we are referring to the standard of living relative to another country, or group of countries, it is often preferable to express GDP per capita in PPS as volume indices.

The second way is GDP (PPP) or GDP at purchasing power parity (PPP). PPP Uses. Purchasing power parity (PPP) is measured by finding the values (in USD) of a basket of consumer goods that are present in each country (such as pineapple juice, pencils, etc.).

For the first time ever, the ICP finds that China’s total real (inflation-adjusted) income is slightly larger than that of the United States.

In purchasing-power-parity (PPP) terms, China’s GDP was $ trillion, whereas the US’s stood at $ trillion. GDP is essentially the amount a country produces in a year. PPP stands for Purchasing Power Parity, which means it adjusts for costs within the country.
