Interregional Input-Output tables incorporate data from multiple regions and allow for an in-depth analysis of economic ripple effects resulting from trade and economic interdependencies among regions. In view of this, this project aims to finalize the official version of the 2015 Kansai Interregional Input-Output Table (assuming that data on Nara Prefecture will be released), as well as to re-estimate the economic ripple effect analysis of the Osaka-Kansai Expo in 2025.
※Greater Kansai includes the following eight prefectures: Fukui, Mie, Shiga, Kyoto, Osaka, Hyogo, Nara, Wakayama, Tottori, and Tokushima.
※The table is compiled for the years ending in 0 and 5, and there is a time lag of about five years between the year of data collection and the year of publication.

The inter-regional input-output table allows us to analyze the economic ripple effect caused by inter-regional trade structures and regional interdependence. By focusing on the Greater Kansai area* and by integrating the results of a preliminary survey conducted among residents and visitors to the Kansai region, we obtained a table which offers a more realistic view of the situation**. This fiscal year, we are planning to analyze the ripple effect of the tourism industry, which was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.
*Greater Kansai area includes the following eight prefectures: Fukui, Mie, Shiga, Kyoto, Osaka, Hyogo, Nara, Wakayama, Tottori, and Tokushima.
**The input-output table targets every year whose number ends in “0” or “5”, leading to a time lag of approximately five years between the target year and the publication year. As of March 2021, we have almost finished collecting the 2015 data for every Kansai prefecture, and based on it we will create the “2015 Kansai inter-regional input-output table”.
