By bne IntelliNews December 14, 2012
Albanias GDP per capita, measured in purchasing power standards, was estimated at 30% of the EU 27average in 2011, Eurostat data showed. The ratio improved by 3pps from the 2010 level. However, Albania, together with Bosnia and Herzegovina still had the lowest GDP per capita in Europe, when compared to the EU average. GDP per capita in the poorest EU member state Bulgaria was at 46% of the average. In terms of Actual Individual Consumption (AIC) per capita, Albania was at 34% of the EU-27 average in 2011, which was again the lowest level in the sample. AIC is considered more accurate measure to compare households welfare, as it consists of goods and services purchased directly by households, as well as those provided by non-profit institutions and the government, such as healthcare and education.
