The Penn World Table (Mark 5): An Expanded Set of International Comparisons, 1950–1988

The Penn World Table (Mark 5): An Expanded Set of International Comparisons, 1950–1988 Abstract The Penn World Table displays a set of national accounts economic time series covering many countries. Its expenditure entries are denominated in a common set of prices in a common currency so that real quantity comparisons can be made, both between countries and over time. It also provides information about relative prices within and between countries, as well as demographic data and capital stock estimates.

The Table is available on personal computer diskettes and through BITNET. * " The authors acknowledge with gratitude the support of the National Science Foundation and the Agency for International Development in carrying out this research. The reactions of innumerable correspondents and callers to earlier versions of the Penn World Table, invited and uninvited, have been invaluable.

Abstract

Abstract The Penn World Table displays a set of national accounts economic time series covering many countries. Its expenditure entries are denominated in a common set of prices in a common currency so that real quantity comparisons can be made, both between countries and over time. It also provides information about relative prices within and between countries, as well as demographic data and capital stock estimates. This updated, revised, and expanded Mark 5 version of the table includes more countries, years, and variables of interest to economic researchers. The Table is available on personal computer diskettes and through BITNET. * " The authors acknowledge with gratitude the support of the National Science Foundation and the Agency for International Development in carrying out this research. The reactions of innumerable correspondents and callers to earlier versions of the Penn World Table, invited and uninvited, have been invaluable. Improvements in this new version reflect the many suggestions and some corrections that have been received. Users of Mark 5 are encouraged to call attention to any anomalies they encounter.
