Notes
  • Temporal Coverage: The data are monthly, based on 45 commodities and going back to 1980 (recent); and annual, based on 40 commodities and going back to 1962 (historical).
  • Timeliness: Data are updated in line with the WEO cycle.
  • Geographic Coverage: 182 economies.
  • Methodology: The country-specific indices are constructed using, alternatively, time-varying weights (using average trade flows over the preceding three years) and fixed weights (based on average trade flows over several decades).
