FRED Interactive: Real GDP per capita
The average standard of living in a country is measured by dividing the value of its gross domestic product by the size of its population. In this interactive lesson, students learn to calculate the gross domestic product per person in the United States. This helps us see how the average standard of living has changed over time.
