A Glossary of the main terms used in the Input-Output (I-O) tables is in the link on the left. The links below contain fuller discussion of the input-output structure and compilation methods.

Explanatory notes covering the basic structure of input–output and associated tables, special treatments adopted in compiling I–O tables, and using I–O tables for analysis are shown in Australian System of National Accounts: Concepts, Sources and Methods (cat. no. 5216.0), Chapter 22, Input-Output Tables.

The I–O tables contain data formatted for presentation in millions of dollars. For use by some analysts and modellers, the data in the some Excel spreadsheets contain additional decimal places to facilitate loading into other applications. Note that in the compilation of I-O tables, various modelling techniques are used to populate the tables because directly collected information is not available for every cell. As a consequence of these modelling techniques, relatively small values may be estimated in certain cells but the statistical accuracy of these data cannot be verified to a sufficient degree. Where values less than $1 million are shown, they are solely to facilitate reconciliation, row and column balancing and do not carry any economic meaning.
