This article presents the summary make and use tables for the 1992 benchmark input-output (I-O) accounts. The summary estimates of the requirements tables will be presented in the December 1997 SURVEY OF CURRENT BUSINESS.

The estimates included in the make and use tables are available on diskette at the summary level (97 I-O industries) and at the six-digit level (498 I-O industries). The "all" diskette contains the summary make table, use table (including estimates by commodity of transportation costs and of wholesale and retail trade margins), direct requirements coefficients table, and industry-by-commodity and commodity-by-commodity total requirements coefficients. The "all" diskette also contains an alternative set of summary make and use tables with industries defined on an approximate 1987 Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) basis. The six-digit "transactions" diskettes contain the make table, use table (including estimates by commodity of transportation costs and of wholesale and retail trade margins), and direct requirements table. The six-digit "alternative transactions" diskettes contain the make and the use tables, but the industries are defined on an approximate SIC basis. Each product includes information on the mathematical derivation of the coefficients tables. The BEA product numbers and the prices for these products are listed below.
