Covering 187 countries including most low-income countries, the toolkit provides indicators on export product diversification and export product quality from 1962-2010. The measures in this toolkit are based on an updated version of the UN–NBER dataset, which harmonizes COMTRADE bilateral trade flow data at the 4-digit SITC (Rev. 1) level. The export diversification and quality database was developed by IMF staff under an IMF-DFID research collaboration.
The Export Diversification Database has three main indicators: the Export Diversification Index, the Extensive Margin, and the Intensive Margin. Higher values for the all three indices indicate lower diversification. The Export Quality Database contains export quality measures across different aggregation levels of export products. Higher values for the quality indices indicate higher quality levels.

this Data set covers the statistical indicators illustrating the development of trade between Oman and other countries, and classification of merchandise exports, re-exports and merchandise imports by commodity group, nature of materials, their final utilization and port of entry. It includes also a table on of the balance of payments estimates.
The commodity classification used in the presentation of foreign trade data is the Hormonised System, which has been adopted in Oman since 1987, in addition to the SITC Revision (4) for international comparison. Commodity values are estimated in Rial Omani on the basis of the (C.I.F.) value for imports (i.e. the cost, insurance and freight of goods to the custom points in Oman) and (F.O.B.) for exports and re-exports.
