 Set of I-O tables—make table, use table, direct requirements table, and total requirements tables—that are an update of the most recent benchmark I-O accounts. Annual tables are consistent with the gross domestic product (GDP)-by-industry accounts, but incorporate less comprehensive source data than those used for the benchmark I-O tables. Related terms: I-O accounts.
 Statistical description–presented in a make table, use table, direct requirements table, and total requirements tables–of the production of goods and services and the transaction flows of goods and services between different industries and to different components of final uses. These accounts are prepared every five years, coinciding with economic census years. Related terms: I-O accounts, annual I-O accounts.

 Show the relationships between all the industries in the economy and all the commodities that these industries produce and use. The estimates of purchases of commodities are shown in producers’ prices. The I-O accounts consist of the make table, use table, direct requirements table, and total requirements tables. The make and use table are prepared in two different ways. The first way uses the Standard Industrial Classification System (SIC) or the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). The second way begins with the SIC or NAICS but includes adjustments (redefinitions  and reclassifications) that move some secondary products from one industry to another to attain a common input structure for commodities produced by industries. The direct requirements table and total requirements tables are computed from the make and use tables with redefinition and reclassifications. Related terms: annual I-O accounts, benchmark I-O accounts.
 Estimate of output required to satisfy a given level of final use. There are three I-O output multipliers, all of which correspond to the total requirements tables. The first shows the total commodity output required to deliver a dollar of a commodity to final uses. The second shows the total industry output required to deliver a dollar of a commodity to final uses. The third shows the total industry output required to deliver a dollar of an industry’s output to final uses. Related terms: I-O accounts.
