A GUIDE FOR USERS OF THE U.S. MULTIREGIONAL INPUT-OUTPUT MODEL (REVISED VERSION)

The purpose of the report is to provide a practical guide for users of the multiregional input-output (MIRO) data assembled at the Harvard Economic Research Project and the model implemented at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology using those data. In the first part, a general description of the multiregional accounting system is given. The second part contains a description of the basic data used to set up the multiregional model for the base year, 1963, and provides the detail and some of the rationale for the methods used to obtain the necessary consistencies, both internally within the MRIO accounts and externally with the national input-output figures. The third part is intended as a guide for the actual implementation of the multiregional input-output model.
