The research has as main objective to carry out a structural analysis of the economy of Pará, filling a gap in research on the region. The analysis, which includes the relations of the state of Para with the rest of the country, was enabled by the construction of input-output matrix of the reference year, 2004. The results showed that there is high dependence of production on the state of Para in goods and services for intermediate consumption for the rest of the country generating a high overflow of the multiplier effect of employment, production and value added, which indicates the need to stimulate local industry of goods and services of intermediate consumption. The sectors with the highest production values of the multiplier in Pará are Livestock and fishing, Food and beverages, Items of clothing and accessories and leather goods and footwear. Sectors of agribusiness, tourism and education have a high capacity to generate jobs, such as Agriculture, Forestry and logging, Livestock and fishing, Articles of apparel and accessories, Lodging and food services, Other services and Public education. Products exported to the rest of the country and abroad have low value, indicating a need for investment in the agribusiness sector. The sectors that showed the largest multiplier value added are Public education, Public administration and social security, Education and Other services market, but they also have a high spillover effect. Investment in public education produces high returns on employment generation and value added.
