Aliasghar Banouei, Behrooz Hadizonooz, Mohammad Assiaee, Mohammadreza Montazeri

Determination and identification of the space economy dimensions in generating regional input-output table coefficients as well as its role in the regional economic analysis have been the focus of attention by the regional analyzers since 1950. The impact and the measurement of the space economy and regional tables' coefficients as well as the generation of regional input-output tables' coefficients may be examined by applying location quotient methods. In the present article, whilst the geographical areas homogenous with physical model of Housing and Urban Development Ministry is introduced, the investigation is accomplished with the purpose to examine this basic question as "How much relative size coefficient is estimated for the decuple regions in physical model?" The coefficients are estimated and calculated by applying the location quotient method, based on the Ghosh supply-side model and by minimizing the statistical errors between the estimated production and the actual one. The results show that multiplier ratio of decuple regions' production is less than that of national production. The imports ratio for decuple regions has been also estimated more than those of national imports ratio.
