Version V1

This database supplies comprehensive annual tabulations of exports among nearly all nations of the world. Encompassing data on 164 nations, the WED database augments empirical research into bilateral and multilateral flows of exports and trade patterns over time. The data are unique in that they are not restricted to member states of a particular organization such as the International Monetary Fund or the United Nations, and they also contain information on all nations with centrally planned economies. The first two variables in the file represent the nations from which and to which the exports are sent, and the remaining variables represent 36 annual figures on the value of the exports in millions of United States dollars at current prices beginning in 1948 and ending in 1983.
