Abstract: In order to provide modellers of the iMAP platform with a shared reference data source, the JRC and DG AGRI agreed to construct and publish a new dataset containing calculations on the apparent use of several agricultural commodities (cereals, oilseeds, dairy products and meat) to provide an approximation of their use at Member State level. This last indicator cannot be calculated because of the lack of information on stocks and the various uses of products disaggregated at Member State level. This new dataset also incorporates a calculation of GIP for animals, obtained as the net production plus the trade balance of live animals. In the context of the public release of the dataset, this report aims to explain to users how to access this data, what the data structure is, which data sources are used, and what the methodology behind the dataset’s construction is with the main processes used to implement this methodology for assuring users of an accurate regular update. Particular attention is paid to the explanation of the limitations of the methodology.
