Abstract: Abstract In this paper, inter-regional and multi-regional input–output tables for municipalities in Aichi and Okinawa prefectures are estimated using a non-survey method. Regional multiplier effects, spillover effects, and feedback effects, among other related aspects, are measured using an inter-regional input–output model. A hypothetical extraction method is applied to a multi-regional input–output model and a method for assessing the importance of municipal industries is proposed. Using these metrics, we conduct a comparative analysis of the local economies of Aichi and Okinawa prefectures and the characteristics of their industrial structures. This paper offers a visual portrayal of interdependency characteristics among municipalities.
