Predicate Proposal - GDP

Field Name: GDP

Definition: Monetary measure of the market value of all the final goods and services produced and sold in a specific time period by a country.

Also known as: Gross domestic product.

Type of value: numbers

#of accepted values: single

Citation Required?: yes.

In order to provide users with comparative analysis tools I suggest using as a citation source either the World Bank (part of the UN institutions) or the International Monetary Fund statistics.

Examples of proper use:

Romania → ‘GDP’ → $ 284,04 billion Citation

Canada → ‘GDP’ → $ 1 988,336 billion Citation

Examples of improper use:

France → ‘GDP’ → $3.667 trillion Citation
In this case Wikipedia is used as a source of citation, which is not a trustworthy source.

Constraints: Only applies when the Subject has the “Is a” value “Country”.

Usage in other schema: Wikidata - GDP

Useful to be able to track progression of values for different years?
Better as numbers rather than text.
Would we assume all values are in US Dollars for comparison?

Hey! Thanks with your feedback! Agree with u on numbers (will change the proposal accordingly). As for the currency, yeah, I believe that US Dollars should be a default currency
