Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

 

Q: To what extent is the data “comprehensive”?

 

A: This question requires a multi—layered answer. For any given country, define the “beginning” of the period as the first investigation for which we are able to collect data. After cross-checking what the country reports to the WTO (to verify we have not “missed” any investigations), the data is comprehensive for the period defined from that “beginning” date to the “end” date which is defined as the last date through which the government publicly updated its website by the time at which we last updated the data (see table above). Generally this covers antidumping activity through 2009 for countries that update their public information frequently. The “beginning” year for any given country differs depending on a number of factors including when it began using the law, as well as when the country made the information publicly available and accessible.

 

A1. For each of the following 16 countries, since they only “recently” adopted and started using antidumping (see table above), the data regarding their initiation of investigations for them in the database is virtually comprehensive:

 

Brazil, China, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Venezuela

 

A2. For each of the following 9 countries whose historical use of antidumping dates back into the 1980s and before, the data does not comprehensively cover their historical use (in the least because it is missing all pre-1980s use of the policy instrument) though the data regarding their initiation of investigations is virtually comprehensive starting with the “beginning” date from which we track the country’s more recent use:

 

Argentina,  Australia, Canada, European Union, Malaysia, New Zealand, South Africa, South Korea, United States

 

A3. For each of the following 5 countries, version 5.1 (Oct 2009) for the first time presents detailed data on products and firms, and we have not yet investigated how historically comprehensive this data is for each country

 

Ecuador, Jamaica, Paraguay, Trinidad and Tobago, and Uruguay

 

 

Q: Does the database record industry petitions that result in “non-initiated” cases?

 

A: To the extent that national governments report the information, if an industry has filed a petition with a government that ended up with the government even refusing to initiate the investigation, we have recorded it in the dataset.
