G-Econ Database

Geographically based Economic data (G-Econ) (by William Nordhaus and others at Yale University) assemble "Gross Cell Products" for each of the 1 by 1 degree cells on the earth. For countries with poor subnational economic data, they rely on population census and national output per capita by agriculture and by non-agriculture.

Used by Pelle Ahlerup and Ola Olsson (2007) "The Roots of Ethnic Diversity" SCHOOL OF BUSINESS, ECONOMICS AND LAW, GÖTEBORG UNIVERSITY, Working paper 281.
