Application of Leontief Input-Output Analysis to School District Budgeting.
Hoffenberg, Marvin; Alkin, Marvin C.
This research report, applying an interdependency approach in an input-output framework to school district budgeting, presents a model aimed at the district management level. The data cover the 1967 operating budget of the Centralia, California, School District of approximately 3.9 million population. Three tables with accompanying textual material are used to construct an intersector (input-output) tabulation for the school system model -- an interdependency table (identity matrix), a direct coefficiency matrix, and a direct and indirect coefficiency matrix. The report concludes that this approach applies to those classes of educational activities where interdependencies are important. (JF)
