Table 10. Total Requirement Coefficients (Indirect Allocation of Imports)
This is similar to Table 7, however the values in this table factor in imports whereas the values in Table 7 do not. The values in a particular column of this table represent the total supply requirements from the industry represented by the row, when the Australian output of the industry represented by the column increases by $100.
A row or column in this table represents an industry group.
The values in Table 9 represent the direct requirement coefficients for each industry when its output is increased by $100. When an industry increases its output, apart from the direct requirements from the industries, there are also indirect requirements from the industries. The values in Table 10 represent the total requirements (i.e. initial + direct + indirect requirements) from all the industries when each industry's output is increased by $100. Another important difference between Tables 9 and 10 is that Table 10 is a square matrix whereas Table 9 is not. As the initial effect is $100 for each industry, the total requirement coefficients in the top left to bottom right diagonal of this square table will be greater than or equal to 100.
For example the column representing the industry Other agriculture shows that the total requirements by this industry from the Sheep, grains, beef and dairy cattle industry is $3.58 of output and imports, $0.64 of output and imports from the Poultry and other livestock industry and so on to increase its output by $100.
