Analyzing Decomposition Analyses

  • Erik Dietzenbacher

Abstract

Input-output analysis has been used widely for cross-sectional comparisons of economies across time and space. ‘The comparison of changes in structure in an economy over time lends itself to more rigour than static structural assessments and cross-country comparisons’ (Rose and Miernyk, 1989, p. 245). For this purpose, the methodology of structural decomposition analysis has been applied extensively. According to Skolka (1989, p. 46), ‘Structural decomposition analysis can be defined as a method of distinguishing major shifts within an economy by means of comparative static changes in key sets of parameters.’
