Condensed version of the OECD foreign trade by commodities tapes


  • Bianchi, Carlo
  • Calzolari, Giorgio


Bilateral import prices are assumed to be the main explanatory variables in an import allocation model. Since official statistics are not available, the construction of these indices has been undertaken, using the data on bilateral trade by commodities supplied by OECD. Data are stored in 126 magnetic tapes, that had to be first of all compressed to become more manageable.
