This paper highlights the numerous improvements to the Global Trade, Assistance, and Production (GTAP) Data Base, version 10 (also referred to as GTAP 10). The Data Base describes the world economy for 4 reference years (2004, 2007, 2011, and 2014) and distinguishes 65 sectors, up from 57 in the previous release, in each of the 141 countries/regions. The 121 countries in the Data Base account for 98% of world GDP and 92% of world population. For each country/region, the Data Base reports production, intermediate and final uses, international trade and transport margins, and taxes/subsidies. This Data Base underlies most, if not all, applied global general equilibrium models. We use the time series GTAP 10 Data Base to examine the evolution of carbon dioxide emissions embodied in bilateral merchandise and services trade over the 2004-2014 period.
