The present empirical study is to implement an interregional input-output model to the Korean regional economies of 1958. In the model, the Korean economy is divided into three regions: Region I consists of Seoul City, Kyonggi-Do, Kangwon-Do and Chungchong-Pudko Provinces; Region II, Chungchong-Namdo, Cholla-Namdo, Cholla-Pudko Province and Cheju Island; Region III, Kyongsang-Pudko and Kyongsang-Nando provinces. Each regional economy is desegregated into twenty industries or sectors following the same sectoral classification made on the 1958 I-0 national table. The structural framework of the Korean interregional model is comprised of two sets of matrices: one being the I-0 production coefficient matrix; the other, the supply coefficient matrix. Since the information regarding the difference in regional production technique is not available, the 1958 Korean I-0 national table is applied for the production coefficients, assuming the same technical coefficients for all three Regions in Korea. The supply coefficient matrix is derived from such statistical data as, The Census of Mining and Manufacturing (1958), various Governmental Reports, etc., to show the supply pattern of the interregional economy. Upon determination of these two structural matrices, a new matrix, the Korean interregional coefficients matrix, is obtained [TRUNCATED]
