How to read this chart: This chart shows the selected variables and their relationships. What can that mean? Division: If we, for example, divide a financial sum by the number of people, then the resulting figure tells how much of the amount falls on one person. Percent: The percentages say, what part of the whole is the given value. For example, 25% is a quarter of the whole, 50% means a half of the whole, 100% means a whole. Here you can see the definition of other variables used in the chart above:

Gross domestic product (GDP) is the market value of all officially recognized final goods and services produced within a country in a given period of time. GDP per capita is often considered an indicator of a country's standard of living; GDP per capita is not a measure of personal income (See Standard of living and GDP). Under economic theory, GDP per capita exactly equals the gross domestic income (GDI) per capita (See Gross domestic income).

A population is all the organisms of the same group or species who live in the same geographical area and are capable of interbreeding. In ecology the population of a certain species in a certain area is estimated using the Lincoln Index. The area that is used to define a sexual population is such that inter-breeding is possible between any pair within the area and more probable than cross-breeding with individuals from other areas. Normally breeding is substantially more common within the area than across the border. (Source: Wikipedia.org)
