On the balancing of data in Input-Output networks

Johannes Többen

NTNU Industrial Ecology Programme, Trondheim, Norway

After I comleted my studies in Economics at University of Osnabrück in 2011, I worked as a PhD researcher at the Institut of Energy and Climate Research at Froschungszentrum Jülich until 2016. My PhD thesis was supervised at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. Since 2017, I work at NTNU Trondheim. During my PhD research I developed methodologies for estimating commodity flows under limited information and constructed a Multiregional Input-Output (MRIO) table for Germany's 16 federal states, which. In 2013, I stayed two month as a guest researcher at the Centre for Integrated Sustainability Analysis, School of Physics University of Sydney, Australia. I used the MRIO to assess the regional economic impacts of natural disasters, as well as the regional and social distributive effects of the German energy policy.


Large Multiregional Input-Output(MRIO) databases mapping flows measured in various units such as currency, tons or caloric values are the backbone of many recent environmental-economic studies. Their construction typically... [ view full abstract ]
