Strategic Trade Atlas Data 2015-2019

Collection: STA : Strategic Trade Atlas 

Description

The slice of world trade data underlying the Strategic Trade Atlas is made available here, covering the trade period 2015-2019. The data is published in three sets. The first, named Strategic Trade Atlas Data, is the main set. It includes trade flow data between countries in strategic commodities over time. The second set, named Strategic Commodities RCA Data, provides the estimation of the Revealed Comparative Advantage by countries in the trade of strategic commodities for the time period of reference. The third set, named Total Trade Data, includes trade measures by countries in all commodities (strategic and non strategic). This is of use to compute the share of strategic trade versus all trade.

  • Abstract

    A Strategic Trade Atlas was developed to promote understanding of global trade flows of strategic goods, i.e., goods of militarily strategic value, including dual-use goods. This Atlas provides macroscopic graphical representations of global trade flows classified under Harmonized System (HS) codes associated by the World Customs Organization with strategic commodities. The profiles provide information rich

    representations of strategic commodity-related imports and exports classified under these HS codes, based on data originally reported to and made publicly available by the United Nations Statistical Division, then processed to reconcile trade asymmetries by the Centre d'Etudes Prospectives et d'Informations Internationales. This and other high quality, statistically relevant data sources exist, but are largely untapped resources for strategic trade control purposes. Efforts to promote and facilitate use of trade data should enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of strategic trade control efforts.
