"Chapter 2: Guide to the GTAP Data Base"
by Aguiar, Angel and Erwin Corong

The GTAP Data Base is a global data base representing the world economy for a given reference year — 2004, 2007, 2011, 2014 and 2017 for the GTAP 11 Data Base. The files comprising the GTAP Data Base are distributed with two alternative aggregation packages, a command line version FlexAgg2 and a graphical user interface (GUI) version GTAPAgg2. These packages include all the data files that comprise the GTAP Data Base, except for the time series trade data. The five GTAP files consist of sets, parameters, main data, energy volume data, and CO2 emissions data. All original data files in these distributions are header array files, a GEMPACK binary format (Harrison, J.W. and Pearson, K.R. 1998). The packages are designed to aggregate GTAP data into smaller dimensions. In addition, the packages convert the aggregated data into GAMS data exchange files (GDX).1 Finally, the disaggregated GTAP Data Base is also available in GDX format.

This chapter provides a guide to the components of the five GTAP Data Base files. It also covers the concordances for the 65 sectors and the 160 regions of the GTAP 11 Data Base. Details about sources and construction of the individual components such as domestic data bases (or I-O tables), international data sets, and parameters, are provided in subsequent chapters.
