Programming Language



icio measures trade in value-added and participation in GVCs of countries and sectors by exploiting Inter-Country Input-Output (ICIO) tables. It provides decompositions of aggregate, bilateral and sectoral exports and imports according to the source and the destination of their value-added content. The command allows to work directly with the most popular ICIO tables - WIOD (Timmer et al. 2015), TIVA (OECD), EORA (Lenzen et al. 2013); in addition, any other user-provided ICIO table can be loaded. icio encompasses the most relevant measures of value-added in exports and imports at different level of aggregation. It follows closely the accounting framework presented in Borin and Mancini (2019), which - in turn - extends, refines and reconciles the other main contributions in this strand of the literature. As different empirical questions call for distinct accounting methods, icio is designed to be flexible also in this respect.
