Methods for Assessing the Effects of Final Demand on Industry and Occupational Employment. Technical Note No. 2.
There have been developments in interindustry economics which make it useful to reassess the potential for using input-output analysis for study of industry and occupational employment. The basic data sources available for conducting input-output analysis of employment include the Bureau of Economic Analysis in the U.S. Department of Commerce. Notations, definitions, and conventions established are used in developing a number of mathematical expressions of unit terms which are useful in assessing the effect of various patterns of final demand upon employment by occupation and industry. The relevant matrix manipulations are explicated with a simple example of an economy with three industries and three commodities. The final section discusses the application and use of the various expressions developed. (CM)
