In search of  the "euro effect", we explored trade data using different measures. Above you can choose data for exporters and importers  corresponding to:

1. Trade Intensity Index (TII)

2. Pavitt taxonomy 

The way in which data are presented is as follows. 

In the case of TII, choose an exporter, and other countries (or groups of countries) are automatically displayed  as importers. 

In the case of Pavitt taxonomy, choose an exporter, and other countries (or groups of countries) are automatically displayed  as importers according to a four scale classification: scale intensive, science-based, specialized suppliers, traditional. 

 

The data were collected in the time span between 1995 and 2014 (occasionally 2015, according to the data availability). Comparability of data was ensured thanks to using the HS 1988/1992 (H0) trade classification.
