Country A has 16 million inhabitants and 2.000 MW of solar panel generated power, also a GDP of $50.000 per capita
Country B has 160 million inhabitants and 2 MW of solar panel generated power, also a GDP of $10.000 per capita
Would it be correct to say that country A has two thousand times as much solar power because:
If country A was as populous as B, they would have 20.000 MW in solar power.
But if country A was as poor as country A, they would have 4.000 MW solar power. So, after adjusting for differences in population and wealth, country A still has 2000 times the solar power that country B has?
Is it correct to adjust for differences in population and wealth in that manner, or not?
Follow up question: Is there a formal way, when comparing countries or groups, to adjust for differences in various traits (such as population size and GDP per capita?)
