Japan’s nominal gross domestic product per capita stood at $38,371 (about ¥3.96 million) in 2008, ranking 19th among the 30 member states of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the government said Friday.

The ranking, unchanged from 2007, equals the lowest level for Japan since 1971, when comparable data became available, according to the Cabinet Office.
