Attention that point & comma convention is not applied consistently throughout the data. 

While for most types of data everyone will understand whether “.” or “,” actually distinguishes the decimal point, especially the GDP data might be confusing as the World's GDP is not 85,804,391 trillion USD but 85.8 (applying the English style).
