How big is Uttar Pradesh, the most populous state?

One way of answering the question is to take its total area: 95,000 square miles (246,000 sq km).

Another way is to think of it as a country. If Uttar Pradesh were to declare independence, it would be the world's fifth most populous country.

Yet its economy would only be the size of Qatar, a tiny oil-rich state of fewer than two million people.

That makes it poor on a per person basis. Despite India's two decades of rapid growth, Uttar Pradesh's GDP per head is close to that of Kenya.

The following data, based on 2009 figures, presents country equivalents for India's states and territories in terms of GDP, GDP per person (in PPP terms) and population, according to The Economist.
