Import value index (2000 = 100)
Definition: Import value indexes are the current value of imports (c.i.f.) converted to U.S. dollars and expressed as a percentage of the average for the base period (2000). UNCTAD's import value indexes are reported for most economies. For selected economies for which UNCTAD does not publish data, the import value indexes are derived from import volume indexes (line 73) and corresponding unit value indexes of imports (line 75) in the IMF's International Financial Statistics.

The darker the shade, the higher the value. The country with the highest value in the world is Equatorial Guinea, with a value of 1,127.73. The country with the lowest value in the world is Palau, with a value of 88.91.
