Every other region within the size class is assumed to produce for external demand, with the basic sector consisting of the difference between an industry's share of employment in the region and that industry's share in the region where it attains its minimum value. 9) where m stands for the region in r's size class that has the smallest value for Eim lEm. 10) Thus, whereas the location quotient approach assigns to basic all employment greater than the national average share of the economy (Ein lEn), the minimum requirement approach assigns all employment greater than the group minimum (EimIEm).

In fact, Stevens and Trainer (1976) present some rather strong evidence that multipliers based upon the technical coefficient matrix are not very sensitive to randomly generated errors. Their research may have important implications for the appropriate methodology to be used in nonsurvey-based input-output models. 5 CONCLUSION The multipliers derived from economic base, econometric, and inputoutput studies have been the subject of many evaluations. These numbers are evaluated against one another and frequently against some numbers that are believed to be the "true" values for a region but which actually are based on little more than intuition.

To the extent that re- 42 METHODOLOGY gions do produce more for their own consumption than the minimum share indicates, the technique may not be underestimating basic activity after all. Borrowing the words from Ullman, Dacey, and Brodsky (1969, pp. 19-20), one might be tempted to conclude that the choice is between the irrelevant average of the location quotient and a false minimum. Moreover, it is unknown whether this "minimum" over- or understates the true value. The assignment technique can be carried out with data at any level of aggregation.
