GTAP Data Bases: GTAP 10 Satellite Data and Utilities

GTAP 10 Satellite Data and Utilities

The GTAP Satellite Data and Utilities listed below allow users to more easily use and adapt the full suite of GTAP Models for analysis of global trade and environmental issues. Purchasers of the GTAP 10 Data Base will automatically get access to these data sets.

Composition and Documentation

  • Food balance sheets - Nutritional accounts are based on the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) data to estimate nutritional content. Calories, fats, proteins and carbohydrates are estimated and reported. Also included are use categories that account for food, feed, seed, losses and other uses. In terms of food supply, we identify primary commodity sectors, food processing sectors and service sectors that supply food. For detailed documentation please refer to GTAP Working Paper No. 90
  • GTAP Energy Subsidies - GTAP-ES is a version of GTAP integrates pre-tax fossil-fuel consumption subsidies as described in Chepeliev et al. (2018).
  • GTAP Land Use and Cover database - The land use and land cover extension of GTAP (GTAP LULC database) and its variants have been extensively used in a wide variety of applications aimed at examining the land-environment-energy nexus. For each of the GTAP regions, land endowment is represented by 18 Agro-ecological zones. For documentation please refer to GTAP Research Memorandum No. 36.
  • GTAP-APT - GTAP-APT considers Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) data to target agricultural production in 100+ countries in GTAP. For documentation please refer to Research Memorandum No. 35.
  • GTAP-MRIO - Extends the standard GTAP Data Base by additionally distinguishing bilateral trade and tariff flows by agents or so-called end-users, namely: firms, private household, government and investors. For documentation please refer to Research Memorandum No. 34. and GTAPv7-MRIO model --RunGTAP Application (Zip archive)
  • Air pollution dataset - Emissions for 9 substances are reported in the database: black carbon (BC), carbon monoxide (CO), ammonia (NH3), non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOC), nitrogen oxides (NOx), organic carbon (OC), particulate matter 10 (PM10), particulate matter 2.5 (PM2.5) and sulfur dioxide (SO2). For documentation please refer to Research Memorandum No. 33.
  • Non-CO2 Data Base - Emissions are reported for three types of non-CO2 GHGs – CH4 (methane), N2O (nitrous oxide) and the group of fluorinated gases (F-gases), and cover four reference years of GTAP 10a. Each emission flow is associated with one of the four sets of emission drivers: output by industries, endowment by industries, input use by industries and consumption by households. For documentation please refer to Research Memorandum No. 32.
  • GTAP-Power Data Base - GTAP-Power is an electricity-detailed extension of the GTAP Data Base. The GTAP 'ely' sector is disaggregated into: transmission & distribution, nuclear, coal, gas (base and peak load), oil (base and peak load), hydroelectric (base and peak load), wind, solar, and other power technologies. These new sectors are combined with the original GTAP sectors resulting in a data base with 76 sectors and 141 regions. The methodology has been revised and is documented in Research Memorandum No. 31
  • GTAP-E Data Base - The GTAP-E Data Base provides carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions data distinguished by fuel and by user for each of the 141 countries/regions in the GTAP 10 Data Base. GTAP-E data is based on: GTAP 10 and extended energy balances compiled by the International Energy Agency (IEA). A FlexAgg distribution and GTAPAgg2 packages for each of the reference years are available to assist in aggregating the GTAP-E Data Base for use with the GTAP-E Model.
  • GDyn Data Base - Augments the GTAP Data Base with foreign income receipts and payments as described in detail in McDougall et al. (2012) and Golub (forthcoming). The GDYN model incorporates a new treatment of investment behavior and additional accounting relations to keep track of foreign ownership of capital.
  • GMig2 Data Base - Extends the GTAP Data Base with international bilateral migration and remittances (Walmsley, Ahmed, and Parsons, 2007 and Aguiar, 2020). The GMig2 model, explicitly modeled to track the movement of workers and estimate the level of remittances (Walmsley, Winters, Ahmed, 2013).
  • Bilateral Time Series Trade Data - We are grateful to Dr. Mark Gehlhar for preparing this time-series merchandise trade data from the year 1995 to the year 2016, for all regions in GTAP 10. Included readme file provides instructions on how to use this with GTAP distributions (FlexAgg and GTAPAgg).
