Input-Output tables are an integral component of the Australian National Accounts. They serve two main purposes. Firstly they provide a detailed disaggregation of production on an annual basis, which is used as the benchmark for the annual National Income, Expenditure and Product accounts. Secondly, they provide a detailed and comprehensive picture of the Australian economy which facilitates analysis of the impacts of policy or other change on the level of economic activity.

Input-Output tables provide a comprehensive view of the economic activity of Australia. In particular they show in some detail the components of gross domestic product for a given period. They also show the links between the various industries within the Australian economy.

The Input-Output tables record the disposition of the output of each industry and they also record the inputs required by each industry to achieve the level of output observed. Disposition of output refers to how the output of a particular industry is disposed of, i.e. as intermediate input into other industries production processes or as a final use through household consumption, capital formation, change in inventories or exports.

A total of 107 industries are shown in the Input-Output tables, five of which relate to the mining sector.

Statistics on the value of Australian production, imports and exports for approximately 1,000 separate commodities are also available.
