The data on this page are from the 2015 model benchmark reported in Petri and Plummer, The Economic Effects of the Trans-Pacific Partnership: New Estimates, Working Paper 16-2, Peterson Institute for International Economics and East-West Center, 2016. A page linked below offers similar information for the 2012 model.
