Input–Output (I–O) tables are part of the Australian national accounts, complementing the quarterly and annual series of national income, expenditure and product aggregates. They provide detailed information about the supply and use of products in the Australian economy and about the structure of and inter–relationships between Australian industries.
This publication contains the preliminary release of the I-O tables for 2007–08 and includes input and output by product and industry groups; use of domestic production and imports by industry and final demand categories, and taxes, subsidies and margins on supply by product (Tables 1–4, 23–39).
For further information about these and related statistics, contact the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070.
The tables presented here are the basic transaction tables of the I-O suite of tables. The tables in this release will be re–released, to take account of user feedback, along with the rest of the coefficients, industry flow, employment and margins tables (5–10,17,19–21 and 40) in October 2011.
With the release of tables for 2007–08 the ABS has completed 23 I-O tables for Australia. Previous tables were for 1958–59, 1962–63, 1968–69, 1974–75, for each year from 1977–78 to 1983–84, 1986–87, 1989–90, 1992–93 to 1994–95, 1996–97, 1998–99, 2001–02, and 2004–05 to 2006-07.
A list of the 2007-08 I-O tables available in this release can be accessed by clicking the downloads tab. They include tables that record input and output by product and industry group and taxes, subsidies and margin matrices.
In 2006-07 the structure of the tables changed due to the adoption of ANZSIC06 and SNA08. There are now 112 product and industry groups, however users should note that in 2007-08 the IO tables report for only 111 of these groups due to confidentiality reasons. The underlying methodology used in their construction has been kept consistent with the 2006-07 I-O tables release.
