"GTAP 7 Data Base Documentation - Chapter 7 I-O Table: Iran"
by Taheripour, Farzad


Abstract
The Iranian input-output table in the GTAP 7 Data Base is constructed from the 2001 input-output table supplied by the Statistical Center of Iran (SCI) 1 and some supporting tables estimated from other data sources. The data are cleaned and transformed to meet GTAP’s requirements. The data provided covers the Iranian calendar year 1380, from March 21, 2001 to March 20, 2002.

This paper describes the provision of the Iranian input-output for the GTAP 7 Data Base. The data for Iran are provided in an array format outlined in the table 2 of Huff, McDougall, and Walmsley (2000). The original SCI table is a commodity by commodity table and covers 91 commodities. Commodities in this table are not matched with the GTAP classification. Hence, the original table is mapped into a 45 by 45 table, in such a way that each of the 57 GTAP commodities corresponded to just one of the 45 new commodities.

Section 1 describes the main data sources used. Section 2 outlines the transformation process of the source data into the corresponding GTAP format and its requirements. Section 3 describes the main differences between this version and the Iran I-O table in the earlier versions of GTAP data bases. Finally, section 4 presents key diagnostics tests applied to the data base before its distribution.
