Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this document we develop a compatible sector, constant dollar, commodity-based set of economic flow (Use and Make) matrices for the years of 1963, 1967 and 1972. These matrices then are used to produce energy intensities for the three years. Energy intensities are the measure of the direct and indirect energy (in physical units) required to make a unit of produced good or service. These intensities are compared, and possible reasons for differences are discussed.
