  <dc:description>EXIOBASE 3 provides a time series of environmentally extended multi-regional input‐output (EE MRIO) tables ranging from 1995 to 2011 for 44 countries (28 EU member plus 16 major economies) and five rest of the world regions. EXIOBASE 3 builds upon the previous versions of EXIOBASE by using rectangular supply‐use tables (SUT) in a 163 industry by 200 products classification as the main building blocks.

EXIOBASE 3 is the culmination of work in the FP7 DESIRE project and builds upon earlier work on EXIOBASE 2 in the FP7 CREEA project and EXIOBASE 1 of the FP6 EXIOPOL project. These databases are available at the official EXIOBASE website.

A special issue of Journal of Industrial Ecology (Volume 22, Issue 3) describes the build process and some use cases of EXIOBASE 3. This includes the article by Stadler et. al 2018 describing the compilation of EXIOBASE 3. Further informations (data quality, updates, ...) can be found in the blog post describing a previous release at the Environmental Footprints webpage. Various concordance tables for the database are available here.


Previous EXIOBASE 3 Versions

There were earlier public releases of the data (EXIOBASE v3.3 and v3.4). These versions are available upon request. We recommend, however, to use the latest version due to major differences in water and land use accounts.


End year 

The original EXIOBASE 3 data series ends 2011. In addition, we also have estimates based on trade and macro-economic data up to 2016. A lot of care must be taken in use of this data. It is only partially suitable for analysing trends over time!

The basic description of the process employed is in the relevant deliverable.

As of v3.7 (doi: 10.5281/zenodo.3583071), the end year is: 2015 energy, 2016 all GHG (non fuel, non-CO2 are nowcasted from 2015, CO2 fuel combustion is based on data points (see below)), 2013 material, 2011 most others, land, water.

The EXIOBASE country disaggregated dataset EXIOBASE3rx provides land updates to 2015.

Some work is going on to update the extensions, but other collaborative efforts are more than welcome.



We use the EXIOBASE google group for announcing new versions of the database.</dc:description>
