Use of Input-Output Multiplier in Research Analysis


I have a researcher who has used provincial input-output multipliers as part of the analysis in a paper. The researcher wants to know if it's possible to have the multipliers in the paper as part of the equation to show that how the value is derived in the analysis. My understanding of the DLI license is that this would constitute raw data and couldn't directly be included in the paper. I've looked through the licensing cases on the web site and I don't find anything that exactly fits this case. The researcher would like a definite answer for this.


If like with most academic publications, the researcher needs to include a few figures from a provincial input-output multiplier Excel table to support his/her analysis and cites these, this is fine. The researcher couldn't include an entire table however as this would be redistributing the product.

I hope that this is helpful. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any other questions.
