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.

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....
