“In 2021, Gross Domestic Product per capita, expressed in Purchasing Power Parities, stood at 75.1% of the European Union average in 2021, a figure 1.1 percentage points lower than that recorded in 2020 ( 76.2%)”, says the National Institute of Statistics (INE) in a document on Purchasing Power Parities.

Portugal occupied the 16th position among the 19 countries of the euro zone - just ahead of Latvia (71.9%), Slovakia (69.4%) and Greece (63.8%).

INE also mentions that in Portugal, in nominal terms, GDP per capita in 2021 grew by 7.1% in 2021, compared to a nominal increase in GDP (7.0%), "since the population in 2021 was marginally lower than the previous year” – with both indicators returning to nominal levels equivalent to 2019, the last year before the Covid-19 pandemic.
