At a meeting of the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) Advisory Committee, staff from BEA and the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES), National Science Foundation, described the upcoming release of and future plans for new official statistics on trade in value-added (TiVA). Slide presentations:
Tom Howells, BEA -- Trade in Value Added: Update on Work with NSF https://www.bea.gov/system/files/2021-11/Trade-in-Value-Added-Update-on-Work-with-NSF.pdf
Lucia Guci, NCSES -- Trade in Value Added Joint Project: the NCSES Perspective https://www.bea.gov/system/files/2021-11/Trade-in-Value-Added-Joint-Project-the-NCSES-Persepective.pdf
Discussant: Bill Powers, U.S. International Trade Commission -- Comments on “Trade in Value Added” https://www.bea.gov/system/files/2021-11/Comments-on-Trade-in-Value-Added.pdf  
Initial Results (2007-2020) to be released in Fall 2021:  
• Expanded SUT from current 71-to 81-industries, additions include: Semiconductors–Communications equipment–Aerospace products and parts–Pharmaceuticals and medicine–Navigation/measurement/electromedical equipment –Software publishers–Scientific R&D services
• Data will be provided for five countries/regions: Canada–Mexico–China–Europe–Rest of World   
What’s Next for TiVA?:
 • Year 2:  Possible publication at 140-industry level–Research possible estimation at 400-industry level–Continue work on extended supply-use tables
• Year 3:  Re-evaluate regional breakouts–Possible publication at 400-industry level–Move toward incorporation of extended supply-use tables
• And beyond:  Decomposition of value added into capital and labor services–Decomposition of capital services by type of asset–Real TiVA statistics–Hybrid model  
BEA invites input from economists on the following questions. Send comments to thomas.howells@bea.gov
Which industries should BEA consider prioritizing for future releases?
Which regional breakouts would be most beneficial to include in this dataset?
How should the data be organized and presented to maximize their accessibility and usefulness?
What can BEA do to inform data users of the uses and benefits of these new data?
