: The RAS method is an iterative procedure that bi-proportionally scales an input–output table to be consistent with given row and column sums. It can be used to disaggregate an annual national table to more detailed tables, such as regional, quarterly, and domestic/imported tables. However, the regular two-dimensional RAS method does not ensure the consistency of the disaggregated tables with the original table. For this problem, we use the multidimensional RAS method, which besides input and…

An efficient implementable inexact entropic proximal point algorithm for a class of linear programming problems.

This work designs an implementable inexact entropic proximal point algorithm (iEPPA) combined with an easy-to-implement dual block coordinate descent method as a subsolver that is highly efficient and robust for solving large-scale CMOT problems.



The Use of Multidimensional RAS Method in Input-Output Matrix Estimation

This work proposes multidimensional RAS method which besides input and output totals also ensures quarterly or regional totals and shows that this method has a 6.65% greater accuracy than the classical RAS.


Subnational multi-regional input–output tables (IOT) are important tools for studying interregional socio-economic and/or environmental interrelations that help to address a wide range of current

On the accuracy of gravity-RAS approaches used for inter-regional trade estimation: evidence using the 2005 inter-regional input–output table of Japan

In contrast to international trade, it is still difficult to find regional trade statistics within a nation. Given that the gravity model continues to be very popular, we test two gravity-RAS

Disaggregating input–output tables in time: the temporal input–output framework

ABSTRACT The input–output framework has evolved dramatically since its initial formulation. New analytical techniques and extensions have allowed a more comprehensive assessment of the economy and

Construction of Regional Input-Output Tables Using Nonsurvey Methods

Regional input-output tables are usually not constructed from survey data but are estimated using nonsurvey regionalization methods, which saves time and money. However, traditional regionalization

A Comment on Tobias Kronenberg’s “Construction of Regional Input-Output Tables Using Nonsurvey Methods: The Role of Cross-Hauling”

This article examines the effectiveness of a new non-survey regionalization method: Kronenberg’s Cross-Hauling Adjusted Regionalization Method (CHARM). This aims to take into account the fact that

WIOD SAMs adjusted with Eurostat data for the EU-27

ABSTRACT This paper provides a new set of Social Accounting Matrices (SAMs) for the EU-27 and describes their construction process. The World Input–Output Database (WIOD) has been used as the main

Using Weighted Least Squares to Deflate Input–Output Tables

This article proposes a balancing procedure for the deflation of input–output (I-O) tables from the viewpoint of users. This is a ‘subjective’ variant of the Weighted Least Squares (WLS) method,


The results from a project aimed at creating an MRIO account that represents all countries at a detailed sectoral level, allows continuous updating, provides information on data reliability, contains table sheets expressed in basic prices as well as all margins and taxes, and contains a historical time series are described.

Regionalising Input-Output Tables: Comparison of Four Location Quotiënt Methods

In this chapter we compare four methods to generate a regional input-output table (RIOT). A RIOT is a requirement for a regional input-output (IO) analysis and any over- or underestimation of
