Matrix, and to promote its use through sharing ideas and experiences among
members of the scientific community, researchers, statisticians and policy promotors interested in input-output matix
and related methods.
the principal objectives of the Input-Output model is to analize
the interdependency of industries in an economy, showing how the outputs of
one industry are the inputs of another, thus reflecting their
inter-relationships. Currently, this is one of the most-used tools in the
analysis of domestic production and of integration of the local economy into
the international context.
As a tool
for analysis, the 2011 Input-Output Matrix allows the estimation of possible
direct and indirect impacts of changes in final demand or prices. In this
sense, research made using the matrix becomes a fundamental input to
understand the country’s economic reality.
