Welcome to IO-Snap!

Our online documentation is intended to provide an introduction to the features and uses of IO-Snap. IO-Snap supports a wide array of analytical features. Data can be edited and displayed in a variety of formats and compared and contrasted across geographical definitions at different times.

Cut and paste options are enabled throughout so that users can easily transfer data to spreadsheets for further analysis, graphing, etc. The software supports the generation of Make and Use Tables for the US, for states, for groups of states, and for generic regions for user provide input data. In the process of assembling the various utilities that support national and state-level input-output analysis, we also have created an environment that facilitates inter-state comparisons of input-output related variables such as employment and compensation.

IO-Snap is designed to provide users with maximum flexibility in modifying and manipulating national and regional IO data.
