NTIS: PB 197 693 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :54 pages
The regional input-output model reported was developed as part of the Bureau's resource allocation investigations. The economies of the 11 Pacific and Mountain States are highly interrelated, and in periods of growth they tend to become increasingly dependent on regional resources and less dependent on the more industrialized east. This study attempted to quantify these flows as precisely as possible and to analyze the productive potential of the region as a whole in the light of its known resources and possible comparative trade advantages. Major difficulties encountered were a lack of standardized accounting procedures; a lack of implicit agreement on economic sectoral units of disaggregation, problems of secondary transfers, and the absence of gross trade flow data from primary sources. The study can be considered to have concentrated on the problems of standardization in sectoring and of disaggregating at the regional level. The 1963 78-sector input-output model for the Pacific Mountain States is based on the 1958 U.S. national coefficients.
