Trade Databases

The IMF Direction of Trade Online database contains time-series data from 1980 forward. It provides data on the value of merchandise exports and imports between each country and all its trading partners. Presents bilateral and multilateral exports and imports aggregated at national and regional levels.

Contains monthly and annual data, searchable by commodity down to the 10-digit HS commodity code level, details by partner country and customs port area. Covers only trade between the United States and its foreign partners, not trade between two foreign countries.
