Hello, I'm working on a hobby project to compare countries GDP... I have the following data: nominal GDP for a given country Inflation, GDP deflator (annual %) I downloaded (annual %) GDP deflator and nominal GDP data from worldbank website and it's data looks like this: GDP nominal year 2000: 7.305.600.000.000,00 year 2001: 8.943.600.000.000,00 ... deflator (anual %) year 2000: 37,69809557 year 2001: 16,48952798... My problem here is I don't know how to use deflator values to calculate real GDP. How do calculate real GDP for year 2001 in this case?

Never mind, I just figured out... There is a deflator table on worldbank not by percentage of inflation. to use percentage as from my example above is much complicated, but that's solved now
