User's Manual for the SADCC Cereals Trade Database Compiled by the University of Zimbabwe and Michigan State University



Two databases were constructed on trade of three staple grains (maize, wheat, and rice) for 1970-1985. The first database includes information on trade quantities by destination and source country. The second database covers estimates of total annual imports by country from six different data sources. The paper also identifies data sources, discusses problems constructing trade databases as well as problems specific to Southern Africa trade data.
