Why can’t I find estimates of Gross National Product (GNP)?

The World Bank uses terminology in line with the 1993 System of National Accounts and refers to GNP as "Gross national income" or GNI. GNI measures the total domestic and foreign value added claimed by residents, and comprises GDP plus net receipts of primary income (compensation of employees and property income) from nonresident sources. The World Bank uses GNI per capita in U.S. dollars to classify countries for analytical purposes and to determine borrowing eligibility. Learn more about country classifications.
