Notes:

(1)   Aggregates are based only on the focus countries included in this research project. Use aggregates with caution because they do reveal where country level data are missing. This is especially relevant for 1955-1959 and 2005-2007. Please refer to the country database for country level data.

 

(2)   Aggregates with the words 'incl. China and India backcast' are computed as follows: estimates for NRA and RRA for China pre-1981 and India pre-1965 are based on the asumption that the agricultural NRAs in those years were the same as the average NRA estimates for those countries for 1981-84 and 1965-69, respectively; and that the value of production in those missing years is that which gives the same average share of value of production in total world production in 1981-84 and 1965-69, respectively.  (Analagous assumptions for CTEs and value of consumption.).
