Abstract: Recent contributions in input-output analysis (ten Raa and Rueda-Cantuche, 2007) show that backward input-output multipliers can be computed by using firms' micro data and econometrics, thus keeping statistical properties of consistency and unbiasedness. The analysis can be extended to forward multipliers and with supply and use tables instead of micro data. However, standard input-output analysis provides the former two impact measures as starting points to identify key sectors by means of several indicators, for which there is no general agreement on the most appropriate. In order to circumvent this issue, this paper adds the DEA approach to the extended econometric framework with the aim of identifying key activities (instead of key sectors) in terms of the backward and forward potential increase of outputs and employment. The empirical work is carried out for the Turkish economy.
