Schein, Andrew. “Growth in Per Capita GDP in the West Bank and Gaza 1950–2005.” Middle Eastern Studies 49.6 (2013): 973-989.
This paper examines the growth of per capita GDP in the West Bank and Gaza Strip (WBG) from 1950 to 2005. Data from Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics and the World Bank is integrated with Angus Maddison’s estimates of per capita GDP of the WBG and Israel to produce new estimates of per capita GDP for the WBG from 1950–2005 in 1990 international dollars. With these new estimates, it is possible to compare the growth in WBG from an international perspective. One finding is that from 1968 to 1999 the economic growth in WBG was the tenth highest in the world.
