Gravity Portal: ITPD-E

International Trade and Production Database for Estimation (ITPD-E)

The database contains consistent data on international and domestic trade at the industry level covering agriculture, mining, energy, manufacturing, and services. The ITPD-E is constructed using reported administrative data and intentionally does not include information estimated by statistical techniques, which makes the ITPD-E well suited for estimation of economic models, such as the gravity model of trade.

The ITPD-E provides wide and detailed coverage

  • 17 years, 2000-2016
  • 243 countries
  • 170 industries

Download the dataset

Data is in comma-separated (csv) format. The first line of each file contains variable names. The file is compressed (zipped) and has a size of about 300MB.
