- International Merchandise Trade Statistics (IMTS) recommends to use a free on board (FOB) valuation for exports and cost, insurance, and freight (CIF) valuation for imports. CIF is a sum of FOB, freight, and insurance value of imported goods. IMTS suggests countries that record import value on CIF to have an additional method to decompose CIF into FOB, freight, and insurance value. FOB, insurance, and freight fraction follow multivariate fractional model. The model is to give prediction value of three CIF components fraction. Based on MAPE and RMSEP value, mode of transport, transit status, and group of two digit HS code are three covariates that the best precision of the predicted value.

CIF value decomposition, Modeling Fractional Outcomes, Quasi Maximum Likelihood

Based on the model there are three factors (covariates) which provides the lowest MAPE and RMSEP. These factors are mode of transportation, transit status, and group of two digit HS code.
