What happens to employment if exports of a product or service change?
This interactive tool is based on SAMs, and provides the number of jobs that would be generated by an exogenous shock in final demand for the selected commodities. This number accounts for direct, indirect and induced effects, calculated after (an infinite) feedback effects.
The shock can be introduced in two ways:
- As percentage increase/decrease in the initial value of final demand.
- As an increase/decrease in the absolute value of final demand.
Shocks can be introduced in several sectors simultaneously as the effects are independent of each other. The results show the variation in job creation in each of the sectors shocked and the aggregate variation (total jobs, jobs in the main productive sector of the commodity, jobs in the other sectors).
