Abstract

The land-use augmented version of the GTAP Data Base has been used for a wide variety of applications (Hertel, Rose, & Tol, 2009). The original GTAP-AEZ database incorporated geospatial data on land use into the version 6 GTAP Data Base, with a benchmark year of 2001. The methodology for integrating this information into the GTAP-AEZ framework is documented by Lee et al. (2009). This database has been updated for 2004 using the version 7 GTAP Data Base, national-level crop production data from FAOSTAT and updated time-series data on cropland and pasture cover developed by Navin Ramankutty (2011). For version 7, the original geospatial data on crop production circa 2000 from Monfreda et al. (2008) was used since updates for this data are currently unavailable. This memorandum documents how the land use data has been updated for use in the version 8 data base. In keeping with the multi-year release of v.8, the Land Use Data Base is updated to two base years: 2004 and 2007. This update heavily relies on the methods outlined by Avetisyan, Baldos and Hertel (2010), but there are some changes in sources and procedures, as will become evident in the comparisons of the v.7-2004 and v.8-2004 data bases.
