ETD – Economic Transformation Database
Open and free to use, the GGDC/UNU-WIDER Economic Transformation Database (ETD) provides comprehensive, long-term, and internationally comparable sectoral data on employment and productivity in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
The ETD covers:
- measures of economic growth and labour inputs for 51 economies in Africa, Asia, and Latin America;
- 12 sectors of the total economy;
- time series with annual data from 1990 until 2018;
- data on value added, price deflators, and persons employed.
The ETD is the successor of the GGDC 10-sector database developed by the Groningen Growth and Development Centre (GGDC) of the University of Groningen. The ETD project has been supported by UNU-WIDER financially and through joint research work.
The ETD is also accessible through GGDC's webpages.
Please consult the change log for an overview of the changes.
