Abstract : The paper presents an analysis of the subcontracting network of the United States defense industry. Primary emphasis is placed on the inter-regional subcontracting flow. An inter-regional subcontracting matrix for both 1965 and 1966 is established and presented. With these matrices, and using a modified input/output type model, it is shown how this technique can be used to study the economic impact on various regions resulting from selective reductions in defense expenditures. A major effort was made to examine the stability of the inter-regional coefficients. he inter-regional (I-A) matrix is included along with its inverse for both 1965 and 1966. (Author)
