ul li { margin-bottom: 15px; } North American Trade in Value Added (NA-TiVA)

This trilateral, multiyear initiative was established by a Memorandum of Cooperation (MOC) that was signed in 2016 by Statistics Canada, the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI), the United States Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), the Unites States Census Bureau, and the United States Trade Representative (USTR). The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) is participating at the request of USTR. The initiative has produced two working papers, one set of reconciled and balanced trilateral trade data, and a regional TiVA database that maps the value chains connecting Canada, the United States, and Mexico. These deliverables are available under the Publications and Data tabs.

    • Note: The data related to the merchandise trade provided by each country are, with a few exceptions, the officially reported data, although the resulting information of the trade reconciliation and OECD’s mechanical balancing process is complementary, coming through experimental methods used to reduce the trade asymmetries. This experimental data does not mean to substitute the official statistics reported by each country; in this sense, it should be considered only for analytical purposes.
