PROGRAM DEBUGGING AND TESTING A LINEAR PROGRAMMING ANALYSIS OF U.S. PRODUCTION, EMPLOYMENT, AND ENERGY USE

Preliminary work on a linear programming analysis of U.S. production, employment, and energy use is under way at LBL. A series of computer programs reads interindustry transactions data, employment data, and energy flow data in an input - output (I/O) format; performs necessary aggregations and calculates direct I/O coefficients; and provides appropriate input data to the linear programming package GUMPS. Several basic computer programs are now debugged and tested, and the flow of data from input tapes to final printed results is accomplished with a minimum of time-consuming hand operations. The format of the data cards and the structure of the component programs are flexible to permit easy later modification. For preliminary debugging and testing of the programs, 1963 national transactions data, employment data, and energy flow were used. The data aggregated into 12 broad sectors: agriculture, forestry, and fisheries; coal mining; crude petroleum and natural gas; other mining; construction; petroleum refining and related products; primary metals manufacturing; other manufacturing; electric utilities; gas utilities; transportation, communication, other utilities; and trade, finance, services, government.
