Input-output tables are a powerful analytical tool for describing the structure of New Zealand’s economy. They show the relationships between industries, the goods and services they produce, and who uses them. Input-output tables have many uses, including:

  • Estimating the effect changes in government policy have on key economic variables
  • Examining the impact of changes in producer prices or wages on the consumers price index
  • Exploring the reliance of industries on imports, and estimating their contribution to exports.


Input output tables are a tier-1 statistic for the government. They are a transformation of the supply-use tables produced by National Accounts through the supply-use balancing process.

Significant events impacting this study series

The tables are normally released every 5 years, but the 2013 tables were released only 4 years after the 2007 tables, because the Christchurch earthquakes and the global financial crisis resulted in users requesting tables updated for these events.
