The file EN_WORLD.ASC contains factor endowment data for all the countries in the Penn World Tables from 1970 to 1990. These data are a subset of a larger effort to compile factor endowment data for a large set of countries from 1950 to the present. This dataset should be considered work in progress.
The latest version of this dataset is available via anonymous ftp from pundit.sscnet.ucla.edu.
