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. The Origin of value added in gross imports presented here, is derived from the latest version of OECD’s Inter-Country Input-Output (ICIO) database and provides estimates of gross imports by country c of goods and services from industry i in partner country/region p broken down by value added originating from source country/region s. In other words, the four dimensions link the imports of country c to the value added from source country s embodied in the exports of industry i in the exporting country p - thus revealing how the value of a country’s gross imports of intermediate and final products from a particular partner is an accumulation of value generated by many countries.
