Sectoral Detail

The data we used come from the Bureau of Economic Analysis. We begin with the Annual Input-Output Accounts at the Summary Level. We won't pretend to do a better job than the BEA in describing their data, but instead point you to their Industry Economic Accounts Information Guide.

We provide three options with respect to the government sectors. Users can choose to accept the four government sectors initial listed within the BEA summary data; aggregate to two sectors -- Federal and State & Local; or aggregate to a single Total Government sector. These options are particularly relevant at the sub-national level where less detailed data are generally less easily obtained.

Users also can select default or create their own aggregation schemes.
