Title GDP_per_capita_PPP_1990_2015
Downloaded 289 times
Description The GDP per capita (PPP) dataset represents average gross domestic production per capita in a given administrative area unit. GDP is given in 2011 international US dollars. Gap-filled sub-national data were used, supplemented by national data where necessary. Datagaps were filled by using national temporal pattern. Dataset has global extent at 5 arc-min resolution for the 26-year period of 1990-2015. Detail description is given in a linked article and metadata is provided as an attribute in the NetCDF file itself.

Title GDP_PPP_1990_2015_5arcmin
Downloaded 293 times
Description This global dataset represents the gross domestic production (GDP) of each grid cell. GDP is given in 2011 international US dollars. The data is derived from GDP per capita (PPP) which is multiplied by gridded population data HYDE 3.2 (the years of population data not available (1991-1999) were linearly interpolated at grid scale based on data from years 1990 and 2000). Dataset has global extent at 5 arc-min resolution for the 26-year period of 1990-2015. Detail description is given in a linked article and metadata is provided as an attribute in the NetCDF file itself.

Title HDI_1990_2015
Downloaded 208 times
Description HDI is a composite index of average achievement in key dimensions of human development (dimensionless indicator between 0 and 1). This index is based on method introduced 2010 and updated 2011. The subnational data for HDI were collected from multiple national-level datasets, and national-level HDI was collected from UNDP. Years with missing data were interpolated over time thin plate spines, assuming smooth trend over time. The dataset has a global extent at 5 arc-min resolution, and the annual data is available for each year over 1990-2015. HDI sub-national data covers 39 countries and 66% of global population in 2015.

Downloaded 359 times
Description The GDP (PPP) data represents average gross domestic production of each grid cell. GDP is given in 2011 international US dollars. The data is derived from GDP per capita (PPP), which is multiplied by gridded population data from Global Human Settlement (GHS). Dataset has a global extent at 30 arc-second resolution for three time steps: 1990, 2000, and 2015.
