1 TRADE MICRODATA: The OECD-Eurostat Trade by Enterprise Characteristics (TEC) Database Working Party on International Trade in Goods and Trade in Services Statistics (WPTGS) Paris, 8 November 2011

2 Plan of the presentation:  Status of the Handbook on Trade Micro-data:  Inform on progress  Approve the content list  Consider the feasibility of answering a small survey intending to enhance the quality of the Handbook: –addressing information gaps –meeting methodological concerns  Status of the OECD-Eurostat TEC Database:  Inform on progress  Future Perspectives on TEC:  Enhance TEC’s potential to meet policy needs  Comment on feasibility and prioritisation of proposed topics

3 HANDBOOK ON TRADE MICRO-DATA

4 Content: 1.Rationale for Trade Micro-data  What can we learn about the microstructure of international trade?  How is that useful to inform policy making? -TEC database -Countries’ experiences in how trade micro-data has been used to inform policy 2.Methodological Chapter  Building a Trade Register  Linking Trade and Business Registers  Quality Indicators  Potential for more Micro-data Linkage

5 Content (2): 3.The OECD-Eurostat TEC Database  Role of OECD and Eurostat and cooperation  TEC Questionnaire  Content (indicators, breakdowns, data availability)  Structure (dataset organisation)  Concepts and Definitions

6 Feedback Required: Approval of content and structure Further suggestions on content Evaluate the possibility of answering a survey on: –How trade micro-data has been used to inform policy –Experience on micro-data linkage –Methodological guidance and/or problems encountered (trade register: thresholds, data sources, longitudinal dimension) –Issues on international comparability

7 THE OECD-EUROSTAT TRADE BY ENTERPRISE CHARACTERISTICS DATABASE (TEC)

8 2011 Update: Countries: –Extended TEC to new countries but others have not yet responded Years: (2010 for Turkey) Main Changes: ISIC 3.1 to ISIC 4 Data gaps Quality: Matching Ratios

9 Exporting is not everyone’s business (2008 data)

10 Export Propensity Increases with Firm Size (2008 data)

11 Evolution of Export Share of Large Firms

12 FUTURE PERSPECTIVES: ENHANCING TEC’S POTENTIAL

13 Project Proposal  Methodological Improvements:  Reducing unmatched data  Tackling confidentiality  Total Number of Enterprises for EU Member Countries  Achieving comparable Trade by Commodity Groups Statistics  Extending TEC by Incorporating New Variables:  Firm level characteristics: Ownership and Turnover  Adding a longitudinal dimension: new, persistent exporters  Include Trade in Services  Measuring the Value-Added of Exports  Clarifying the Role of Intermediaries in International Trade

14 Clarifying the Role of Intermediaries Wholesalers and Retailers (% of total exporting enterprises, 2009) 14

15 Clarifying the Role of Intermediaries Wholesalers and Retailers (% of total importing enterprises, 2009) 15

16 Clarifying the Role of Intermediaries International Trade in Goods by Economic Sectors (% of total trade, 2009) 16

17 Feedback Required: Comment on overall proposal Prioritisation: –Extend TEC to trade in services –Using trade micro-data to improve the estimates of trade in value-added measures –Clarifying the Role of Intermediaries –Adding more firm characteristics
