Abstract

This paper has two aims. First, it describes CPB's contribution on bilateral services trade data to version 7 of the GTAP database. Among others, it uses reliability indices to determine the quality of the data reported by exporting and importing countries. Second, this paper discusses briefly some alternative methods to make a choice between two available reporting data for the same bilateral flow. The results can be downloaded from the accompanying spreadsheet.
