The construction of symmetric input-output tables (SIOTs) is a controversial issue as regards the
choice of model to construct both product-by-product and industry-by-industry SIOTs, especially
the former ones. However, there has been little attention paid so far by the UN and the Eurostat
Systems of National Accounts on the choice of type of SIOT to carry out impact analyses let alone
other input-output applications. Concerning the price and quantity models in input-output analysis,
this paper identifies severe problems in the correct interpretation of the meaning of their results
and proposes the use of supply and use tables instead of SIOTs to solve these problems.
