Developed Countries List 2019

A developed country is defined as a country that have a developed economy and advanced tech infrastructure when compared to other nations. Typically, a developed country is designated by look at several factors, including the gross national product, gross domestic product, per capita income, industrialization level, standard of living, and infrastructure.

Developed countries have post-industrial economies with service sectors contributing more to the nation than the industrial sector. Because there are so many factors to consider, actually defining what countries are developed can be a challenge.

The CIA The World Factbook has an entry that identifies the developed countries of the world. The World Factbook has published this list since the 1990s and features countries that are ”known as the First World, high-income countries, the North, industrial countries.”

The countries on the list mostly have a per capital GDP that exceeds $15,000, although there are a few exceptions. On this list, there are 31 developed countries. Those countries, in alphabetical order, are:
