Input data set: Future, gridded Gross Domestic Product (GDP)

Annual GDP data on a 0.5°x0.5° grid for 2006-2099.



Data Type: Socio-economic
Simulation rounds: ISIMIP2b
Scenarios: ssp2soc
Variables: gdp
Specifications

Downscaling from country to grid level achieved using the method described below which makes use of the ISIMIP2b gridded population data.

Data source

Based on the methodology described here: http://www.cger.nies.go.jp/gcp/population-and-gdp.html and the ISIMIP2b ssp2 gridded population data.

These data have been generated by interpolating the data described here: http://doi.org/10.5880/pik.2017.007 to one-year time steps.

Download Instructions

For ISIMIP participants, these files are available for download on the DKRZ server vre2 using the path /ISIMIP/ISIMIP2b/InputData/gdp/ssp2soc/.

For external users, these data will shortly be made available on the ISIMIP node of the ESGF server (https://esg.pik-potsdam.de/projects/isimip/). Currently they are available via an rsync facility (described here: https://www.isimip.org/gettingstarted/data-access/#for-external-non-participant-users), for which the password will be provided upon request (info@isimip.org).
