I imagine angry notes like "World Bank stats are flawed" etc. But these are the numers world mass media use to compare countries - we can't do anything about it. Here I ranked the Eastern European countries. Hope - you do not mind if I include Turkey and Caucasian countries here.

Data are from the end of 2003. In brackets - ranking among the countries of the world.

I don't know for other countries, but 1/2 of informations about Bosnia and Herzegovina in Worldfactbook is not correct.

I already have the Slovenian stats for 2004..

GDP per capita real - 16,112
GDP growth over 2003 - 4.6%
GDP per capita real (2003) - 13,900

GDP growth predicted for 2005 - 3.7%
GDP growth predicted for 2006 - over 4%

(source: www.rtvslo.si, EU, SURS - Statistical Office of RS)

The World Bank statistics differ from our official ones for quite a bit, wonder why. I don't know the PPP values for 2004, but I think they're around 19,000 - 21,000..

CIA WFB is sheer nonsense. Economic information is incorrect/outdated about 95% of time. I'm sure other things are too, I just never bothered to check.

I don't know which GDP estimates are right (yours or WBs), but the real GDP per capita you have is, in any case, correct. It's amazing; Slovenia has a totally Western standard of living.

^ I meant:

GDP growth predicted for 2005 - 3.7% i.e., estimates for this year. WB doesn't have more accurate information yet for that period anywhere on the website (I think).
