Input-output economics is an internationally accepted method of
economic planning and decision making but the construction of input-output
models within Australia has not been extensive even though a
national transactions table was constructed early in the era of
input-output. Over the last decade the situation has been changing
with national tables, now constructed on a regular basis and
regional studies proliferating. The major obstacle to the
preparation of sub-national input-output tables is the paucity of
commodity and trade data so that for most regional studies the
emphasis has been on surveys. For two States, Western Australia and
Tasmania, both commodity and trade data are tabulated by the
Australian Bureau of Statistics thus providing the basis for the
construction of input-output models principally from secondary data.
An interindustry study for W.A. appeared in 1967. The aim of this
study is to produce a Tasmanian transactions table together with the
associated tables of coefficients and to quantify the structural
economic inter-relationships by determining the output, income and
employment multipliers of Tasmanian industries.
In Chapter 2 the input-output system and the assumptions are
presented together with the mathematical relationships. The closed
model and the dynamic input-output system incorporating capital
coefficients, both extensions to the basic open static model, are
also described. The forms of input-output analysis are outlined in
Chapter 3 including structural and multiplier analysis and simulation.
