Data for: The Asymmetric linkage between energy use and economic growth in selected African countries: Evidence from a nonlinear panel autoregressive distributed lag model
This data article refers to the paper entitled “The Asymmetric Linkage between Energy Use and Economic Growth in Selected African Countries: Evidence from a Nonlinear Panel Autoregressive Distributed Lag Model”. The data concern nineteen African countries for the period 1971-2014. The data are extracted from the World Development Indicators database and are related to energy use (kg of oil equivalent per capita) and real GDP per capita (Constant 2010 US Dollars). The variables are decomposed in their positive and negative components which are used to measure and to test for asymmetries in the energy use-economic growth nexus.
