Comparing India and Australia

Here is an interesting comparison of some basic statistics about India and Australia. India has approximately sixty times as many people (1.2 billion vs. 23 million) and less than half the land area (3.3 per 7.6 Million square km). Consequently, the population density is more than one hundred times greater in India (336 vs. 3 people per square km). Despite this disparity in population the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the two countries are comparable (US$1.6 trillion vs. 1.2 trillion). The GDP per person in India is about 40 times less than that in Australia (US$1,371 vs. 55,589).
