Abstract The purest and theoretically superior method for the construction of input-output coefficients is given by the commodity technology model. The commodity technology based input-output coefficients have one shortcoming, however. Some of them turn out negative, which is economically not meaningful. This paper presents a methodology to deal with the problem of negatives in input-output analysis. It allows a statistical assessment of the problem. We are led to reject the commodity… Expand
