Input and Output

The Supply-Use Tables are an integral part of National Accounts System 2008, through which offered products in economy can be grouped whether from domestic production or imports, and their uses as intermediate, exports, fixed capital formation, change in inventory, final consumption for households, Non-Profit Institution Serving Households or government.

These tables are considered the basis for improving the statistical system and making it more consistent, as the tables reflect the comprehension and accuracy of data sources, their limitations and the extent of consistency among them, as they enable a balance to be made at the products level.

The tables represent the methodological framework for preparing Gross Domestic products (GDP) estimates more comprehensively according to the three estimation approaches (production, expenditure and income).

It is also considered the starting point for building Input-Output Tables (IOTs), that provide a statistical description of economic performance and provide important data for macroeconomic analysis, in order to know the links and interrelationships between the various economic which contributes to raising the level of decision making for policy makers in various economic and social areas.

Building Supply-Use and Input-Output Tables depends on the international methodologies that are consistent with System of National Accounts 2008 (SNA2008). The following annex explains the methodology for preparing the Supply-Use and Input-Output Tables (IOTs) for 2016.
