The total effect on the value of production is formed of direct and indirect impacts. Direct impact is the direct impact of an increase of EUR one million in the final use demand of the product on the industry's production. In indirect impacts, account is taken of the multiplier impacts of an increase in the final use demand through inputs bought from other industries on the production of other industries. For example, as the exports of products produced by industry 10_12 Food industry, etc. grows by EUR one million, the direct impact on the industry's production is EUR one million and the indirect impacts are EUR 1.25 million.

Statistics Finland publishes annually the supply and use tables describing product flows in the national economy, and the input-output and analysis tables derived from them. The data published now concern the year 2015. Tables concerning 2016 will be published in November 2019.
