The objective of this study is to analyse job creation and growth potential of the state of Gujarat using both secondary and primary data sources through input-output modeling. The degree of impact of exogenous factors on output of a particular sector on all sectors through different multiplier effects is examined. Three of the most frequently used types of multiplier estimate the impacts of the exogenous changes on (i) outputs of the sectors in the economy (output multiplier), (ii) income earned by households because of the new outputs (income multiplier), and (iii) employment that is expected to be generated because of the new output (employment multiplier).
