Abstract: Robust methods are indispensable in the analysis of international trade data, as outliers and deviations from the classical model assumptions are recurring issues. The objective evaluation of such methods requires a large number of data sets articially generated with known statistical properties, which must comply with real world scenarios. This contribution shows the potential of the Tweedie distribution (Tweedie , 1984) in mimicking the distribution of the quantities of given products imported into the European Union.
