A Miyazawa analysis of interactions between polluting and non-polluting sectors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Interactions between a set of polluting and non-polluting sectors are analyzed using a form of decomposition analysis first proposed by Miyazawa and subsequently modified by Sonis and Hewings. The analysis is applied to a time series set of input-output tables for the Chicago region in an attempt to generate assessments of the internal and external multipliers and their changes over time. The results revealed the important role that structural change will play in determining pollution levels in the region in the future. In addition, significant variations were noted across sectors in terms of the direct and indirect contributions to pollution.
