Esta nota explica en detalle la forma como calculamos la magnitud de las medidas no arancelarias que se aplicaron al comercio exterior colombiano en el periodo 1991-2014 y cuyos resultados fueron publicados en el Borrador de Economía Número 817 de 2014: “Una visión general de la política comercial colombiana entre 1950 y 2012”. La información original que usamos para este trabajo se anexa a esta nota en un archivo electrónico a disposición del público, pues parte de esta información ya no se encuentra disponible en el sitio donde originalmente se publicó. Como complemento de lo anterior, se describe la política de restricciones cuantitativas antes de 1991.
