Bridge Tables

From Open Risk Manual


Bridge Tables. Two tables, one for personal consumption expenditures and one for private equipment and software, that show the relationships between categories of expenditures in the I-O accounts and those in the NIPAs.

The bridge tables enable analysts to use the commodity-composition relationships shown in the benchmark I-O tables to prepare estimates for nonbenchmark years.[1]
