Abstract

This data presented in this article is specifically employed from the Asian region based on the top position in the list of oil exporting and oil-importing countries around the world. Asia as the biggest continent on the earth had high consumption of energy {[}1]. Here we employed the daily prices of crude oil and seven oil trading countries, out of which three are oil exporting (Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Iraq) and four are oil-importing countries (China, Japan, South Korea, India), from the time period of 1-09-2009 to 31-08-2018. The data is collected from an authentic database Bloomberg. This data is related to the research paper ``Volatility spillover impact of world oil prices on leading Asian energy exporting and importing economies' stock returns. Energy, 188 (2019), 116002, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.energy.2019.116002 {[}2]{''}. This data is useful to compare the oil prices impact on the leading oil trading countries and also compare a set of countries affected most by oil prices' fluctuations, oil-exporting countries or oil-importing countries. Since this data covers the period of latest oil-crisis, so the impact of oil-crisis could also be analysed. (C) 2019 The Author(s). Published by Elsevier Inc.
