GIVEN DATA

• nominal GDP was \$9750000.00 in 2005 in Orange County California
• In 2015, nominal GDP was \$11500000.00 in Orange County, California
• price level rose 2.00% between 2005 and 2015
• population growth was 3.25%.

nominal GDP growth was=(11500000/9750000)^(1/10)-1

=1.66%

economic growth was=((1+1.66%)/(1+1.50%))-1

=0.16%

inflation rate=price level growth

=1.50%

real GDP growth rate=economic growth rate=((1+1.66%)/(1+1.50%))-1

=0.16%

per capital real GDP growth=((1+0.16%)/(1+3.50%))-1

=-0.727
