In the interest of including additional countries from the Caribbean into the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) database to support economic analysis on these countries, the Inter-American Development Bank commissioned the inclusion of Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic into version 8.2 (and 9) of the GTAP database. The document describes the process of transforming the original input-out and supply use tables of these four Caribbean countries into the GTAP format.
