Academy Course: Input-Output Model Interactivities

A new short introductory course on Input-Output analysis focuses on stylized interactive calculations that can be performed directly within the online reading sections.

The level of the course is introductory. There are no mathematical nor computer science prerequisites. It should be useful for anybody wishing to obtain insights into the flow of the basic calculations behind modern large scale Environmentally Extended Input-Output Models.

The objective of the course is to provide intuition and familiarity with the basic calculation workflow, indicatively:

From the Initial IO System


Calculate the Technical Requirements Matrix:


Calculate the Leontief Inverse Matrix:


Enter a new Demand vector:


To obtain the new IO system:
