Comparing China With India by Numbers

A comprehensive comparison between the two largest country in the world. It seems India is only moving ahead incrementally, while China is galloping.

14. Economical History
Data show that China developed much faster than India even before China’s reform. India was much better than China before the Chinese Communist Party took power. In 1950, India’s GDP per capita was almost 1.5 times of China’s. But China’s GDP caught up India in 70s last century. Now China’s GDP per capita is almost 2.5 times of India’s
GDP Per capita ( I believe it is based on PPP)
Country…1820….1870….1913….1950….1973…1998…2003
China…….600……530……552……439……839….3,117…4392
India……..533……533……673……619……853….1,746…2160
