About GTAP: Center for Global Trade Analysis

The Global Trade Analysis Project is coordinated by the Center for Global Trade Analysis, which was founded in 1992 by Professor Thomas W. Hertel and is housed in the Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University.

The Center employs staff members and a team of graduate assistants, which are Ph.D. candidates in either the Economics or Agricultural Economics programs. In addition to the staff, GTAP relies heavily on a worldwide network of CGE modelers and trade economists. These collaborators provide data and modeling expertise to help foster the Center's mission.
