Set ddata:UK input-output analytical tables
2 March 2018
The 2014 UK Input-Output Analytical Tables (IOATs) are consistent with the 2017 editions of UK National Accounts Blue Book and UK Balance of Payments Pink Book.
The 2014 IOATs are derived from the 2014 annual Supply and Use Tables (SUTs). The SUTs provide a picture of the flows of products and services in the economy for a single year and are used to set the level of annual current price gross domestic product (GDP). They show the composition of uses and resources across institutional sectors and the inter-dependence of industries to reconcile the production, income and expenditure approaches to the measurement of GDP. These tables, together with supplementary data and certain economic assumptions (that is, technology assumptions), have been combined to construct the input-output table. This table describes how products (and primary inputs) are used to produce further products and satisfy final demand. The input-output table and its derivative outputs collectively form the IOATs.
The IOATs are traditionally published once every five years due to the time it takes to compile the additional data required. The previous version of the IOATs was the 2013 edition, which was consistent with the Blue Book 2016 dataset.
We have been aware of the strong user demand for publication of IOATs on a more frequent basis and therefore the tables have now been updated to reflect 2014 data. We intend to build on the work done and move towards annual publication.
