The Trade in Value Added (TiVA) database consists of a set of measures that aim to provide better insights into global production networks and supply chains than is possible with conventional trade statistics. See TiVA web page at: http://oe.cd/tiva.

The Origin of value added in gross exports presented here, is derived from the latest version of OECD’s Inter-Country Input-Output (ICIO) database (see ICIO web page at: http://oe.cd/icio) and provides estimates of gross exports of goods and services by exporting industry i in country c, broken down by the value added originating from source industry j in source country/region s.

In other words, it reveals how the value of a country’s gross exports of intermediate and final products is an accumulation of value generated by many industries in many countries.

For a description of the method used for calculating these estimates using the ICIO, please refer to the TiVA indicators guide.

Domestic value added origin is shown where source country s = c and, for convenience, also represented by source country = “DXD: Domestic”.

From this data cube, a range of gross exports-based measures can be derived including those in TiVA principal indicators cube such as:

• Total gross exports by industry, EXGR (c,i): set source country s = World, source industry j = DTOTAL.

• Total domestic and foreign value added content of gross exports by industry, EXGR_DVA (c,i) and EXGR_FVA (c,i). For EXGR_DVA, set source country p = DXD “Domestic”, source industry j = DTOTAL.

• Shares of EXGR_DVA and EXGR_FVA in relation to EXGR such as EXGR_DVASH (c,i), EXGR_TDVAIND (c,i), and the “GVC backward linkage” indicators EXGR_FVASH (c,i) and EXGR_TFVAIND (c,i).

• “GVC forward linkage” indicators such as EXGR_DVAFXSH.

• Service value added contents of gross exports EXGR_SERV_DVASH(c,i) and EXGR_SERV_FVASH(c,i). Set source industry j = “D41T98: Total Services including Construction activities”.

For regions, exports exclude intra-regional trade and intra-regional value added flows are considered as domestic value added. For example, for exporting region EU28, exports are to non-EU28 and source country “DXD : domestic” includes value added originating from Member States.

Note that the same value added originating from industry j in country p can be present in the gross exports of more than one country c (as embodied value added, from upstream production, may cross national borders many times). In general, therefore, these estimates should be viewed from the perspective of the exporting country c and exporting industry i. However, for indicators of “GVC forward linkages” a source country p, source industry j perspective is required.
