Hebei Province,SBM,water footprint,water use efficiency of grain crops,influencing factors


Hebei Province is one of the major grain production areas in China, but suffers from severe water scarcity. The water use efficiency of grain crops is crucial for regional food security and sustainable agricultural development. The water use efficiency of grain crops dataset in Hebei Province of China (1995-2019) was developed based on data integration between the data from meteorological database of China, the FAO GROP database, field survey data, and Rural Statistical Yearbook data and the models of the super-efficiency SBM model, spatial econometric model and GTWR model. The dataset includes: (1) boundary data of study area; (2) data on blue water, green water, and grey water footprints of grain crops in 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015 and 2019; (3) change trend data of water footprint of food crops from 1995 to 2019. (4) water use efficiency of grain crops at county and regional scales in 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015 and 2019; (5) spatial effects, spillover effects and spatial heterogeneity data of influencing factors on water use efficiency of grain crops; (6) Theil coefficient and contribution rate of four partitions. The dataset is archived in .xlsx and .shp data formats, and consists of 65 data files with data size of 4.09 MB (Compressed into one file with 2.36 MB). The analysis paper based on the dataset have been published in Journal of Arid Land Resources and Environment, Vol. 37, No. 8, 2023.
