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

  • 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-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.
  • 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
  • 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).
