Input and Output
The Input and Output Division was established in 2010 following the preparation of the Input and Output tables – 2006 in cooperation with the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation (MOPIC).
The National Accounts data of 2006 were selected as a reference basis for constructing these tables due to economic and statistical considerations, most notably availability of actual and final data, as well as the economic stability of that year. The project was launched at the beginning of 2009.
The Input and Output tables are of great importance in the process of analysis, planning and providing decision makers with the necessary data. These tables are a statistical description of the performance of the economy and deal mainly with methods of dependence and inter- linkages between different economic sectors.
These tables present the reciprocal relationship between various economic sectors and industries with commodities (using the International Standard Industrial Classification “ISIC” of Economic Activities and the Central Product Classification-”CPC”). These tables represent a square matrix where the sectors group is placed horizontally in it as productive sectors. The same sectors are placed vertically as user sectors … therefore; each sector occupies a row and a column in the matrix so the distribution of this sector’s products on other sectors appears, while the sector’s uses from other sectors’ products appear in the column of this sector.
- Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by production approach.
- Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by expenditure approach.
- Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by production factors input approach.
- Sectors inter- linkages, front and back links between various economic sectors.
