Abstract

This paper develops the methodology and makes the estimation to measure the importance of the Brazilian supermarket complex to employment and income generation in the Brazilian economy in the 1990’s. To do so, input-output matrices are constructed for the years of 1990, 1995 and 1999, where the supermarket sector is separated from the trade sector. The results show that the supermarket complex was responsible for approximately 6.1% of the total employment in the economy (3.8 million of occupied persons), and for 5% of Brazilian GDP (R$ 46.8 billion in 1999). The study also shows the results disaggregated by economic sector, such that it is possible to know about importance of the links that the supermarket sector has with the other sector in the economy, in terms of employment and income generation.
