Differences in values of imports between national accounts and input-output tables

The value of imports in the supply and use and input-output tables 2000-2005 is smaller than the revised value of imports in national accounts data published in January 2008. Because of the time-consuming process involved in balancing the supply and use tables, no attempt to rebalance the supply and use sides has been made at this stage. Values of imports in supply and use tables and input-output tables will be corrected together with other national accounts revisions. New tables will be published in 2009. Till then the total value of imports in the tables will diverge from the revised value of imports as shown in the table.

Imports of goods and services, EUR million.
