University Contribution Studies Using Input-Output Analysis (PDF)

Many universities report results based on input-output (I-O) analysis to promote the contribution that they make to a regional economy. How these results are obtained is not always clear. Nor are they always based on best practices. This paper presents best practices when using a regional I-O model to conduct a university contribution study. It also provides examples that suggest a transparent framework for presenting results.
