This paper endeavours to update the series of PSE calculations based on the 1998 OECD methodology (OECD 1998) which is a slightly revised methodology from the earlier calculations. The OECD terminology also now means that PSE stands for Producer Support Estimate and is calculated by classifying policy measures under a slightly different set of categories.
