Real GDP Per Capita Data

GDP per capita data is in terms of 2005 US dollars at purchasing power parity. I obtained the data from the Penn World Table and included only countries that had data available for each year starting in 1960. The Python code used to construct the datasets and the figure is available from this Github repository.
