GDP by income
Real versus Nominal GDP
Nominal GDP is the value of all final goods based on the prices existing during the time period of production. It's referred to as current-dollar or money GDP.
It grows in three ways-Output rises, prices remain the same. Prices rise and output is constant. Typical case both output and prices rise.
Measuring the difference between changes in output and changes in the prive level involoves making an imporant distinction beteen nominal GDP and real GDP
Real GDP is the value of all final goods produced during a given time period based on prices existing in a selected base year.
The toal income recieved by households that is available for consumption, saving, and payment of personal taxes
income household receives
Per Capita GDP

leading= varibales that change before real GDP changes
Coincident indicates- varibales change at the same rate as GDP
lagging= change after real GDP
