Income per person in Gapminder World

The name of the main income indicator shown when Gapminder World is started has been revised for clarity, but the data remain the same. It is now called “Income per person (GDP/capita, inflation-adjusted $).

This is our attempt to clarify that this indicator in fact adjusts for inflation. It also adjusts for differences in purchasing power across countries. In other words, this is the best available indicator for comparing living standards across time and between countries and we hope the new indicator name better reflects this.
