Supply, Use and Input-Output tables — Overview



What are supply and use tables?

Supply and use tables (SUT) are matrices by product and industry demonstrating how the domestic production and import of goods and services is used for intermediate consumption and final use (consumption, gross capital formation and export).

The use table provides also information about value added components (compensation of employees, other net taxes on production, consumption of fixed capital, net operating surplus).

What are input-output tables?

Input-output tables (IOT) are product-by-product or industry-by-industry matrices combining both supply and use into a single table with identical classification of products or industries, applied to both rows and columns. These are analytical tables derived from supply and use tables. Input-output modelling helps for economic impact analysis and can answer questions such as:

  1. What happens to job growth when income taxes are increased on businesses?
  2. How much does industry output react when the price of gasoline increases?
