Based on first preliminary estimates, Gross Domestic Product per inhabitant expressed in Purchasing Power Standards in the Czech Republic was some 20 percent below the EU average. Overall, the figures varied from 37% to 280% of the average across the 27 member states. Revised estimates will be published in December.
