America's figure is always a bit confusing. They publish figures which are retracted the following month or the following quarter and replaced by new figures. It just happened again for Q1/2012 - first report 2,2%, revised report 1,9%.  Sorry, I didn't check it out in the first place but believe you're correct.

As for China's GDP as of 31.12.2011 - It was 47,16 trillion CNY converted with the last available USD exchange rate of 2011 (6,34 CNY equals 1 USD) it's USD 7,438,5 b. and not 7,300b.  For simplification reason I posted 7,4 tr.
