What is real GDP?

Real GDP is a variation of GDP adjusted for price changes such as inflation or deflation. It is an adjustment of Nominal GDP.

It is expressed in relation to an index point in time (for example, “2010 dollars”).


Real GDP = (Nominal GDP / GDP deflator) x 100


In a country, nominal GDP is $1,000,000 and the GDP deflator is 125.

Real GDP = ($1,000,000 / 125) x 100 = $8,000 x 100 = $8,000,000

Therefore, real GDP is $8,000,000.
