Estimating input - output multipliers -- a new hybrid approach

Abstract. A new hybrid input - output technique known as GRITSSIC is proposed. The method uses survey-based sums of intermediate coefficients to improve the accuracy and reliability of generalised regional input - output tables. A series of simulation tests and empirical verification through the application of the technique to the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales suggest that GRITSSIC achieves a satisfactory compromise between reliability and cost efficiency.
