The input-output tables for 1983, 1997 and 2004 indicate that the Balearic Islands is a service oriented economy, highly specialized in the production of services for tourists. The main purpose of this paper is to provide an assessment of the weight of tourism in the Balearic economy using input-output techniques to uncover indirect and induced effects. The results obtained confirm the view that tourism has played a fundamental role in the development of the islands during the second half of the twentieth century, although there are indications that the impulse has lost intensity since the turn of the century. Las tablas input-output de 1983, 1997 y 2004 indican que las Islas Baleares es una economía terciarizada, altamente especializada en la producción de servicios turísticos. El principal objetivo de este artículo es calcular el peso del turismo en la economía balear usando técnicas input-output que recojan los efectos indirectos e inducidos. Los resultados obtenidos confirman el papel fundamental del turismo en el desarrollo de las islas durante la segunda mitad del siglo XX, aunque también muestran indicios de que dicho impulso ha perdido intensidad a principios de este siglo.
