Chapter 4: The construction of input–output coefficients
It is not easy to transform the input and output tables "produced" by statistical offices into matrices of input-output coefficients. There are commodity-by-commodity and industry-by-industry input-output matrices and each of them can be constructed using different models. This chapter provides a unifying framework for all these alternatives and discusses the theoretical and practical pros and cons of the alternatives in a way that consolidates the vast literature. The chapter is authored by an expert who combines statistical office experience and academic contributions to the interface of input-output statistics and economic-environmental modeling.
