The factors that drive economic growth are Human Capital, Unemployment, FDI, and Labor Productivity. China, Japan, South Korea, India and Australia have important roles not only in their strategic location but also rapidly developing into regional economic centers in the world. The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of Human Capital, Unemployment, FDI, Labor Productivity on Gross Domestic Product in these countries of China, Japan, South Korea, India and Australia using cross section data for 10 years from 2010 to 2019.
