The I-O tables cover a period of one financial year. Tables were compiled at irregular intervals from 1958-59 until 1977-78, then annually from 1977-78 to 1983-84, then triennially until 1992-93, annually from 1992-93 to 1994-95, and then 1996-97.
This collection was started on an experimental basis for reference year 1958-59. The first production tables were for 1962-63, and then tables were compiled about every 5 years until annual tables started for 1977-78. After 1983-84, tables became triennial up to 1992-93 ,then they became annual up to 1994-95, after which the 1996-97 tables (the latest) were compiled.
Data availability comments
