Abstract: The Strategic Trade Atlas is developed to promote understanding of global trade flows of strategic goods, i.e., goods of militarily strategic value, including dual-use goods. Trade flows are classified under a basket of Harmonized System (HS) codes associated with strategic commodities by the World Customs Organization. While these HS codes are understood to also encompass many non-strategic items, they nevertheless provide a good macroscopic view of potentially strategic trade flows. The Atlas is published as a book in two volumes presenting country-based and commodity-based views of global strategic trade (see Publications). The slice of world trade data underlying the Strategic Trade Atlas is made available here. The raw data was originally reported to and made publicly available by the United Nations Statistical Division (UN Comtrade data), then processed to mirror and reconcile trade asymmetries by the Centre d'Etudes Prospectives et d'Informations Internationales (BACI data). For details about the BACI data processing method, see: Gaulier, G.; Zignago, S. (2010) BACI: International Trade Database at the Product-Level. The 1994-2007 Version. CEPII Working Paper, N°2010-23.
