An HEI-Disaggregated Input-Output Table for Scotland
This paper describes how the education sector of the Scottish Input-Output tables is disaggregated to identify a separate sector for each of ScotlandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s twenty Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). The process draws on accounting and survey data to accurately determine the incomes and expenditures of each institution. In particular we emphasise determining the HEIs incomes source of origin to inform their treatment, as endogenous or exogenous, in subsequent analyses. The HEI-disaggregated Input-Output table provides a useful descriptive snapshot of the Scottish economy and the role of HEIs within it for a particular year, 2006. The table can be used to derive multipliers and conduct various impact studies of each institution or the sector as a whole. The table is furthermore useful to calibrate other multi-sectoral, HEIdisaggregated models of regional economies, including Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) and computable general equilibrium (CGE) models.
