I am looking for some source of data on trade imbalance at a county level in the US, preferably for the years 1990-2007. Does anyone know if such data can be publicly available? Or any paper that has been using data like this?

UPD: to break this down, I am looking for:

  • international import/export statistics by US county,

  • intra-state trade statistics, meaning shipments between counties within the US.

I'm not sure you'll find exactly the data you want here because the data available looks quite difficult to explore but I would try the USA Counties Data File Downloads page of the US Census Bureau.

Some counties seems to give access to trade data too.

Hope it'll help ;)

  • unfortunately, this is not exactly what I am looking for, but anyways thanks for the links - I definitely haven't seen this data before, nice to explore:)
