Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

GDP measures the market value of all final goods and services produced within a country in a given period of time.  GDP measures continuous flow of money from households to firms and then back to households in the whole economy.

The trend of the GDP growth rates is the key indicator of macroeconomic fluctuations , which include expansion, boom, contraction, and recession. Thus the real GDP is used to explain how well the overall economy of a country is performing whereas GDP per capita is used as a natural measure of the economic well-being of the average individual in a given country.

Limitation can be flactuation of price goods
