Abstract. A low-cost technique is developed that allows individual firms and establishments to estimate accurately their output, income, and employment multipliers by integrating their regional coefficients (the proportion of the purchases of a firm from each sector of the regional economy) with an existing regional input - output model. The empirical tests of this method on three actual survey-based input - output models produced excellent results.
