"GTAP 7 Data Base Documentation - Chapter 7 I-O Table: Australia"
by Maidment, Terry and Owen Gabbitas

The GTAP 6 I-O table for Australia was constructed from key input-output tables supplied by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and some supporting tables estimated from other data sources. The I-O table covers the Australian financial year ended 30 June 1997 and records margin activities such as transport as part of the supplying industry. The data were cleaned and transformed to meet GTAP’s requirements. This mainly involved employing the homogeneity assumption to convert from 106 ‘multi-product’ to ‘single-product’ industries and then mapping the data into 57 GTAP industries. The resulting I-O table was balanced using RAS procedures. Although the primary data sources and methodology used are different, the GTAP 6 Data Base is conceptually similar to the previous data base.
