The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita is one of the most widely used indicators to determine a country’s wealth. The data here indicates the GDP per capita from 1966 to 2008, at current prices so that erosion of purchasing power by inflation is not taken into account in this particular chart.
The data show that in 1966 Trinidad and Tobago’s GDP per capita stood at 1247.2 TTD. By 2008 this figure rose to 116242.7 TTD. This means that during the forty-two year period under examination, there was a meteoric rise in the nominal GDP per capita.
