Estimating Import Demand and Export Supply Elasticities

No 368, Econometric Society 2004 North American Summer Meetings from Econometric Society

Abstract: The objective of this paper is to provide estimates of import demand and export supply elasticities for around 4200 goods (six digit of the Harmonized System) in 117 countries. The empirical methodology follows the GDP function approach of Kohli (1991), which allows sufficient flexibility in terms of functional forms. Patterns found in the estimated elasticities are discussed. The estimates and their standard errors can be downloaded from a companion file
