Help, why do children have to be so smart these days. I have been asked to find on the net something like a chart which mentions countries against their GNP, which you would think would be dead easy but alas I am fast learning that the gap between this neadle and the Internet haystack is a looming black hole of "parents these days...", so if you're fed up with gogling each entry of the HJL as I have been doing this morning and if you know of a link, post it here and I'll cook you lunch.

PS Porrage or cheese fondue then.(See "gormets to go cafe" thread in the off-topics forum for details)

I can help you with this, i did alot of geography at school and there is one ultimate resource for that kinf of onformation, its really surprising what it is still brings a smirk to my face but it is:

The CIA, lol they have a puvlic database of all the statistics of individual countries it includes all the details you could possibly need i used it to write up case studies on coutries very similar to what you want to do but i had to use alot more factors http://www.odci.gov/...book/index.html.
When you look at the GNP you can see how wealthy a nation is, it is commonly put as GNP per head of population, this gives a slightly more accurate measure as it is an average of popultion it helps show difference between rich and poor although its not the most strictly accurate measure.

A high GNP and low population would signinfy a well deveoped prosperous nation a high GNP and high population would present you more problems and you cant really determine by looking at thos two factors only. a low GNP and high population would mean a undeveloped country and you can go on on and on about it.

Aah i really loved geography, it was great it really let you see how places in the world worked good and bad. If you need any help just post it up i miss geography.

Thanks for quick feedback, great link too, she has just said that it is income per capiter(something I imagine meaning the income of the country against the population), anyway I'll pass on the link with thanks.
