"GTAP 7 Data Base Documentation - Chapter 7 I-O Table: China"
by Li, Shantong and He Janus

The source of the initial input-output (I-O) table for China is "Input-Output Table of China - 2002” from the Department of National Economy Accounting, State Statistical Bureau (SSB). It is the fourth such I-O table following the 1987, 1992 and 1997 tables. These tables are based on large-scale input-output survey across the country and the First Economic Census of China 2004.

The original 2002 table includes 122 sectors, of which there are 5 sectors for agriculture, 81 sectors for manufacture, and 36 sectors for services. The units are 10 thousands Yuan (RMB) at current producers’ prices, which includes value-added tax but excludes commercial margin, transportation and telecommunication cost.

The intermediate input matrix of the Chinese I-O table refers to total intermediate usage, i.e. the sum of domestic and imported intermediate transactions. It is a commodity by commodity matrix. Household consumption, government consumption, capital formation, changes in stock and exports are final demand categories. The original table includes a column vector reporting imports by sector valued at c.i.f. price plus custom duties. Exports are valued at f.o.b. price.
