Gross Domestic Product Recent Trends for Several Countries

The graph below was created using Google’s Chart Tools.

The graph shows changes from 2008 to 2010 in gross domestic product (GDP) in US dollars for 13 countries. Next to the country’s name in the legend is the GDP percentage increase from 2008 to 2010. Four countries (Japan; Germany; Russia; and Mexico) had a decrease in GDP from 2008 to 2010. Three countries (China; India; and Indonesia) had double digit increases.

China stands out because not only did it have the largest percentage increase but it also started from a base GDP ($8.204 trillion in 2008) more than double the amount of the next highest GDP percentage increased country (India; 16% increase; base = $3.478 trillion).
