Suppose that nominal GDP was \$10000000.00 in 2005 in Orange County California. In 2015, nominal GDP was \$11750000.00 in Orange County California. The price level rose 3.00% between 2005 and 2015, and population growth was 4.00%. Calculate the following figures for Orange County California between 2005 and 2015.

f. Real per capita GDP growth was    %.

a) Nominal GDP growth rate= {(11750000–10000000)/10000000}×100= 75%

b) economic growth measures the change in GDP.

Hence, nominal GDP growth rate can also be considered as the economic growth rate.

Hence, Economic Growth was 75%

c) The increase in the price level is known as the Inflation. The price level rose by 3% between 2005 and 2015. Hence, Inflation was 3%.

d) Real GDP growth= Nominal GDP growth rate– Inflation Rate= 75%–3%= 72%.

e) Per capita GDP growth= Nominal GDP Growth Rate–Population growth rate= 75%–4%= 71%.

f) Real GDP per capita growth = Real GDP growth rate–Population Growth Rate= 72%–4%= 68%.
