Measures of export diversification

The originality of the work done by Céline Carrère, Olivier Cadot and Vanessa Strauss-Kahn is to compute indicators of export diversification by using a huge base of disaggregated data.

These data on exports come from the COMTRADE database (UNCTAD) at the level HS6 (4991 product lines). These indicators are computed for 156 countries from 1988 to 2006 (19 years), allowing to describe how trade changes over time and differs between countries.
