Methodological notes

  • Trade data: total EU trade is calculated by the adding of intra-EU trade and extra-EU trade. Due to quasi-transit trade, this may lead to double counting. An example of this would be wine exported to the United States by France via the Netherlands. This would lead to the same wine being counted as an export by both the Netherlands and France. More precisely, it would appear in the Netherlands' extra-EU exports to the United States and in France’s intra-EU exports to the Netherlands.
