"Alternative Agricultural Price Distortions for CGE Analysis of Developing Countries, 2004 and 1980-84"
by Valenzuela, Ernesto and Kym Anderson


Abstract
This memorandum presents the agricultural protection dataset that resulted from a recent World Bank Research project. The complete dataset is available with this memorandum, along with the mapping required from GTAP version 7 Data Base to the level of aggregation used herein, i.e., 60 regions and 23 sectors. The current GTAP version 7 Data Base may be modified to incorporate this dataset, using an Altertax simulation. The files required for this Altertax simulation, including the closure, experiment file, parameter files and shock files are also being provided here. Starting from the original aggregation of 113 regions and 57 sectors, the users can modify the data either at the level of aggregation suggested herein, or any other feasible level of aggregation depending on their requirements, by suitably modifying the shock files.
