Productivity of artificial land

Productivity of artificial land is defined as the gross domestic product (GDP) of a country divided by its total artificial land. Artificial land consists of built-up areas (areas covered with buildings and greenhouses) and non built-up areas (streets and sealed surfaces). Artificial land productivity shows whether built-up and non built-up areas are efficiently used to generate added economic value.
For the calculation of artificial land productivity Eurostat uses the GDP in millions of PPS (Purchasing Power Standard).
