This section includes information from the different input-output projects that have been carried out in Catalonia. The latest of these projects was carried out for reference year 2011, and the specific information can be found in the section titled Input-Output Framework for Catalonia 2011.
The input-output framework is a system of macroeconomic information that allows us to know more about an economy. The European System of Accounts 2010 (ESA 2010) is the accounting framework of reference for drawing up input-output analyses, with the goal of creating a systematic, detailed description of the whole of the economy, its components and its relationship to other economies. The ESA 2010 directives guarantee methodological homogeneity and improve the comparability of economic data at the international level.
The input-output framework, using the supply and use tables, and the symmetric table, offers a detailed description of the production process (cost structure, income generated and employment) and the flow of goods and services (production, intermediate consumption, final consumption, investment, exports, imports, etc.). The congruence of this framework is guaranteed by two accounting identities: total income generated in each branch of activity is equal to its gross value added and, with regards to each product, the supply is equal to demand.
In the field of official statistics on Catalonia, the national accounts system is consolidated in the publication of the first Input-Output Framework for Catalonia (MIOC-2011), in which, for the first time ever, supply and use and symmetric tables are offered.
The Input-Output Framework for Catalonia (MIOC-2011) is the third edition of this statistical operation carried out in Catalonia; previous editions were the Input-Output Tables 2001 (TIOC-2001) and the Input-Output Tables 2005 (TIOC-2005).
