Title: EXOGENIZING AGRICULTURE IN AN INPUT-OUTPUT MODEL TO ESTIMATE RELATIVE IMPACTS OF DIFFERENT FARM TYPES
Authors: Johnson, Thomas G.

Issue Date: 1982-12
Abstract: In this study, aggregate, provincial level impact for various farm types are estimated for Saskatchewan based on an input-output table constructed for the province. The input-output table is rectangular with the agriculture sector including 12 farm subsectors, treated exogenously. Results indicate that in 1978 agriculture contributed 13.8 percent of the provincial gross domestic product directly, and another 18.2 percent indirectly. Among the farm types, the grain farms generated the highest output multipliers while cow-calf, dairy and irrigation generated the lowest. The income and value added pseudo-multipliers were almost a complete reversal of the output multipliers. Although irrigation generated low pseudo-multipliers, the dairy and cow calf sectors generated higher pseudo-multipliers.
