Input-output (I-O) analysis has been around for nearly 70 years, and although its use has ebbed and flowed over the years, it has always retained a dedicated core of users in the worldwide research community. Recently however, there seems to have been a notable increase in the use of input-output tables in empirical analyses addressing a wide range of policy issues. This is partly due to the improved availability and quality of national input-output tables as well as modern IT capabilities allowing more complex analyses to be undertaken by more researchers. A quick glance through recent editions of the journal Economic Systems Research confirms the variety of research topics that can benefit from inputoutput analysis as does a recent user survey conducted by OECD... Analyse des entrées-sorties dans un contexte de mondialisation généralisée : Utilisation des tableaux internationaux harmonisés de l'OCDE L'analyse des tableaux d'entrées-sorties existe depuis bientôt 70 ans et si leur utilisation a connu des hauts et des bas à travers le temps, ces tableaux suscitent toujours l'intérêt d'un noyau d'utilisateurs du monde entier, spécialisés dans la recherche. Depuis peu, l'exploitation de ces tableaux a toutefois pris de l'ampleur et donne lieu à des analyses empiriques portant sur un grand nombre de questions d'ordre politique. Cela est en partie dû à l'amélioration de la disponibilité et de la qualité des tableaux d'entrées-sorties ainsi qu'aux capacités des technologies de l'information modernes qui désormais permettent aux chercheurs de mener à bien des analyses plus complexes. Les dernières éditions du journal Economic Systems Research, tout comme les réponses à l'enquête menée récemment par l'OCDE auprès de ses utilisateurs, confirment la variété des sujets traités à partir d'analyses des entrées-sorties....
