Democratic Republic Congo (COD) - Transportation Prices (2016)

Description: 

This dataset is the result of a geospatial model that simulates how individuals and traded goods are moved in COD, taking both roads and navigable rivers into account. The Highway Development and Management Model was used to estimate the cost of the road network. The points of origin for the analysis were created by dividing the territory into more than 27,000 cells of approximately 10 kilometers on a side and estimating their centroid. Then, transport cost to the local market was estimated by calculating every possible transport route from every cell centroid to every possible market, and...

Ad Valorem Equivalent of Non-Tariff Measures

Description: 

The ad valorem equivalent (AVE) of non-tariff measures (NTMs) is the uniform tariff that will result in the same trade impacts on the import of a product due to the presence of the NTMs. In other words, the AVEs represent the additional costs that the presence of NTMs has on imports. The AVE estimation is based on data in the TRAINS database. To minimize time inconsistencies, the analysis utilizes a reduced sample of NTMs data collected between 2012 and 2016. The data is transformed in a cross section database spanning about 40 importing countries plus the European Union, about 200...

Worldwide Bureaucracy Indicators

Description: 

The Worldwide Bureaucracy Indicators (WWBI) is a dataset on public sector employment and wages that can help researchers and development practitioners gain a better understanding of the personnel dimensions of state capability, the footprint of the public sector on the overall labor market, and the fiscal implications of the government wage bill. The WWBI aim to fill the gap in information on the personnel of the state by providing more objective measures drawing on administrative data and household surveys, thereby complementing existing, expert perception-based approaches.

Households and NPISHs Final consumption expenditure (current US$)

Household final consumption expenditure (formerly private consumption) is the market value of all goods and services, including durable products (such as cars, washing machines, and home computers), purchased by households. It excludes purchases of dwellings but includes imputed rent for owner-occupied dwellings. It also includes payments and fees to governments to obtain permits and licenses. Here, household consumption expenditure includes the expenditures of nonprofit institutions serving households, even when reported separately by the country. Data are in current U.S. dollars.

Mortality rate attributed to household and ambient air pollution, age-standardized (per 100,000 population)

Mortality rate attributed to household and ambient air pollution is the number of deaths attributable to the joint effects of household and ambient air pollution in a year per 100,000 population. The rates are age-standardized. Following diseases are taken into account: acute respiratory infections (estimated for all ages); cerebrovascular diseases in adults (estimated above 25 years); ischaemic heart diseases in adults (estimated above 25 years); chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in adults (estimated above 25 years); and lung cancer in adults (estimated above 25 years).
