N2 - This paper documents NTM-MAP, CEPII’s database measuring the incidence of Non-Tariff Measures through different methodologies, based on UNCTAD multilateral database. Three indexes are proposed as proxies for NTMs occurrence: frequency index, coverage ratio and prevalence score. Those indices are systematically computed for several countries and products classifications and for five different categories of NTMs (SPS, TBT, PSI, Price Control and Quantitative Restrictions). 63 countries are covered, with reference year 2010, 2011 or 2012, using two different product disaggregation levels (HS-2 and HS-Section). This comprehensive dataset on non-tariff measures is intended for descriptive, trade policy or econometric analysis.
