"GTAP 8.1 Data Base Documentation - Chapter 7: Nigeria"
by Siddig, Khalid and Jonas Luckmann


Abstract
Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa, and the second largest country by GDP after South Africa It possesses the second largest proved oil reserves, after Libya, and it is the top producer of crude oil in Africa (BP, 2011). Hence it is important to have Nigeria represented by an adequate IOT in the GTAP database. GTAP database version 8 includes a Nigerian IOT for the year 1999, which relies on the official 1990 IOT with 30 sectors and an un-official 1999 IOT including 18 sectors (Horridge and Osakwe, 2006; Horridge, 2008). Therefore, a considerable effort is made to use the most recent reliable sources of data to put together a more detailed (38 sectors) and up to date IOT.
