Abstract

SUMMARYGross Domestic Product (GDP) is the most commonly used measure of a country's economic activity. GDP, however, has limitations as a measure of society's well-being and of people's material living standards. This article presents alternative measures of economic activity that may be more suitable indicators of society's well-being. The article explains how the different measures are calculated and the additional insights they offer.
