Provincial and Territorial Supply and Use and Input-Output Tables
The provincial and territorial supply and use tables and input-output tables focus on measuring the productive structure of the economy. They trace production of products by domestic industries combined with imports through their use as intermediate inputs or as final consumption, investment or exports. The system provides a measure of value added by industry—total output (or sales) less intermediate inputs. These tables can be used to calculate economy-wide gross domestic product (GDP) either directly, by summing value added over the industries, or indirectly, by summing to the economy-wide cost of primary inputs (income-based GDP) or by computing the grand total of the flow of products into final demand categories (expenditure-based GDP)—the link to the provincial and territorial measures of gross domestic product by income approach and expenditure approach.
