The Department of National Defence (DND) spends over $10 billion per year on goods and services mostly purchased from Canadian suppliers. The economic activity generated by DND purchases is typically assessed using National Input-Output models developed by Statistics Canada. Using Statistics Canada’s latest economic data, the Centre for Operational Research and Analysis’s Defence Economics Team developed a tailored Input-Output model adapted to the defence industrial sector. The Defence Input-Output model version 4.1 (DIO 4.1) builds on past Input-Output models developed by the Centre for Operational Research and Analysis and features for the first time an interactive and Excel-based user interface. With DIO 4.1, DND staff can run simulations to assess the domestic impact of decisions regarding major equipment purchases and improve on the quality of impact assessments. This technical memorandum documents the economic foundation of Input-Output models as well as the calculations behind DIO 4.1 and a short user guide.
