"Chapter 3: What's New in GTAP 9"
by Narayanan, Badri

The GTAP 9 Data Base is the ninth major public release of the GTAP Data Base since the Project began in 1992. A GTAP Data Base cycle typically begins with updating of the data base to a new reference year. For the second time in the history of GTAP Data Base, we have more than one reference years: 2004, 2007 and 2011 for version 9. The domestic data bases or input-output (I-O) tables are combined with international datasets on macroeconomic aggregates, bilateral trade, energy, agricultural input-output, and protection for the new reference years. Interim releases of the data base are constructed as significant updated datasets become available. Improvements are also made in data sourcing, scope, and construction procedures. Part III of this volume provides detailed information on the sources and procedures employed in the construction of the GTAP 9 Data Base. This chapter provides a summary of the changes that have been made since the GTAP 8 Data Base. Table 3.1 provides a quick comparison of the GTAP Data Base versions 8 and 9.
