South Sudan GDP Annual Growth Rate

The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in South Sudan contracted 55.80 percent in 2012 from the previous year. GDP Annual Growth Rate in South Sudan is reported by the SSNBS, South Sudan. From 2009 until 2012, South Sudan GDP Annual Growth Rate averaged -11.4 percent reaching an all time high of 4.3 percent in December of 2009 and a record low of -55.8 percent in December of 2012. South Sudan, officially recognised as a country in July 2011, is the youngest nation in the world. Despite taking over about 75 percent of old Sudan’s oil reserves, it is one of the poorest regions in Africa and government revenues are still dependent on foreign aid. A majority of population relies on subsistence agriculture. Lack of basic infrastructure such as paved roads, electricity and water supply is a major setback to the country’s development. After an unusually peaceful independence process, the relationship with Sudan has been tense. Pending agreements on border lines, oil revenue share, ethnic rivalries and weak government influence may hamper South Sudan’s future.

GDP Annual Growth Rate | Notes
The annual growth rate in Gross Domestic Product measures the increase in value of the goods and services produced by an economy over the period of a year. Therefore, unlike the commonly used quarterly GDP growth rate the annual GDP growth rate takes into account a full year of economic activity, thus avoiding the need to make any type of seasonal adjustment.
