Formatted Abstract/Summary
In this paper we present the UQICD Mark II database of internationally comparable incomes and expenditures. UQICD Mark II provides panels for 181 countries. The data include purchasing power parities (PPPs) at GDP level in current and constant prices for the period 1970 to 2012, and PPPs for the components of domestic absorption (consumption, investment and government expenditures) for the period 1970-2010. The panels in UQICD are constructed using an econometric method developed by the project team. The paper provides the main features of the method and its established properties in addition to a short user guide to a dedicated website established to disseminate the database.
