US, UK, India, China – a statistical comparison

Inferences

  1. Chinese GDP is about 6.3 times the size of  Indian GDP
  2. Agriculture GDP and employment account for less than 2% in UK and US. In China and India agriculture GDP % is far less than agriculture occupation %. That means, farmers and agricultural labour are squeezed in favour of services and industry.
  3. The numbers show that China has achieved very low level of poverty in its population. However, poverty line numbers are not strictly comparable from one country to another as the living standards and poverty line definition varies.
