Backus and Kehoe (1992) used a data set covering only developed countries, since they claim that data for underdeveloped countries may not be available or, in case it is, may not be sufficiently accurate for the study of short-term fluctuations. In this paper we are going to provide a historical data set for the Brazilian economy, the construction of the data set will be explained so that the possible problems with the accuracy of the series may be dealt in a proper matter
