Data for: Estimating domestic content in China’s exports: Accounting for a dual trade regime
This paper identifies the key problem in studies related to the global value chain, which is estimating the import matrix. Here, a dual trade regime is incorporated into a new set of China's input-output tables, using data for the period 1997-2015. This study re-estimated the domestic content in China's exports, based on a special input-output (IO) database. Contrasting this database with alternative generic databases suggests the special IO database has promising features for evaluating the domestic content of exports.
