|GDP is not a flow, it is a 'level' (or 'stock' if you like to call it that). Change in GDP is a 'flow' and % change is a 'rate' [of change].
A measure of welfare is different, as you may wish to include expected life span, income differentials, population-sentiment/expectations. You may wish to accrue the future in various ways. There is no commonly accepted measure of welfare as 'welfare' means applying some form of utility function and making a value judgement. But this is academic stuff, not GDP stuff.
