Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Does anybody know where we might find median PPP income figures? I haven't had any luck locating them.

You can reconstruct the median PPP income by putting together three more easily accessible data: median nominal income, nominal GDP, and PPP GDP (the last twocan be either gross or per capita). The ratio of nominal GDP to PPP GDP gives you the conversion factor from nominal income to PPP income.

LOL indeed...

I didn't think their data were freely available, though. The country briefings are freely available, but those do not include median income.
