"The OECD PSE database and its use in market model"
by van Tongeren, Frank, Shingo Kimura and Christine Le Thi

The OECD has been developing a unique database of agricultural support in member countries and some non-member countries (Brazil, China, Russia, South Africa and Ukraine). Producer Support Estimate (PSE) allows analysts to compare the change in the level and composition of domestic support to agriculture over time, making it an important resource in monitoring and evaluating the changes in agricultural policy. Although the database itself can measure policy effort, it cannot estimate the impact of domestic support by itself.

Since 1998, OECD has been developing the Policy Evaluation Model (PEM), which provides a stylized representation of production, consumption, and trade of aggregates of major cereal and oilseeds crops, milk, and beef production in seven OECD countries or regions. The sensitivity of the results to assumptions about the elasticity values or price responsiveness of supply and demand for inputs have been analysed in detail and also provide important information for policy makers. OECD has been using the PEM to simulate the market and welfare effects of policies recorded in the PSE database. The representation of policy in PEM model follows the policy classification made in the PSE database, whose classification method is updated to reflec much more details on the implementation criteria under which support is provided to producers.
