  • WIOD Data, 2013 Release

    Production processes increasingly fragment across borders. This fundamentally alters the nature of international trade with deep consequences for the location of production. The World Input-Output Database (WIOD) is the first public database that contains new information on these trends and provides the opportunity to analyse the consequences of fragmentation, for example for shifting patterns in demand for skills in labour markets, or for local emissions of air pollutants. The World Input-Output Database (WIOD) provides time-series of world input-output tables for forty countries worldwide and a model for the rest-of-the-world, covering the period from 1995 to 2011. These tables have been constructed in a clear conceptual framework on the basis of officially published input-output tables in conjunction with national accounts and international trade statistics. In addition, the WIOD provides data on labour and capital inputs and pollution indicators at the industry level that can be used in conjunction enlarging the scope of possible applications.

    The World Input-Output Database (WIOD) 2013 Release consists of a series of databases and covers 27 EU countries and 13 other major countries in the world for the period from 1995 to 2011.

    When using this database, a reference should be made to the following paper:

    WIOD main data tables

    Input-Output Tables
    This section presents the 2013 Release of the World Input-Output Tables (World IO Tables) including 40 countries and a model for the rest of the world. Deflated WIOTs in Previous Years' Prices (World IO Tables PYP) are available, as well as national aggregations (National IO Tables) and regional aggregations (Regional IOTables) of the WIOTs. Additionally the underlying International Supply and Use Tables (International SUTs). National Supply and Use Tables (National SUTs), and Input files for National SUTs (Input for SUTs) are available in this section.
    Socio Economic Accounts
    Data on employment (number of workers and educational attainment), capital stocks, gross output and value added at current and constant prices at the industry level.
    Environmental Accounts
    Data on energy use, CO2 emissions and emissions to air at the industry level.
