Abstract : An inputoutput table is a mathematical model of a national or regional economy. Its essential feature is that it reveals the interrelations between and among each of the industrial sectors into which the economy is divided. The United States National accounts now include inputoutput tables, the current set being the 1958 InputOutput Tables. The DoD is engaged in exploratory inputoutput studies directed toward developing a model which will produce accurate regional economic impact projections of changes in defense expenditures. Such a model would permit formal consideration of economic inpact in DoD procurement actions. (Author)
