GARAY, Mario; AROCA, Patricio  and  SOZA-AMIGO, Sergio. Economic effects in the education sector at Arica, Valdivia and Punta Arenas. Magallania [online]. 2016, vol.44, n.2, pp.171-185. ISSN 0718-2244.

This article analyzes from an economic perspective the impact of educational services in Arica, Valdivia and Punta Arenas cities. Using input-output tables, elaborated for 25 activities and products for the period from 2007 to 2012, the research estimates the contribution of Education from the perspective of external multipliers, subsistence and internal Miyazawa (1966). Later, using the Rasmussen technique (1956) the types and importance of the existing productive relationships were established. Finally, applying the modified proposal Soza-Amigo in 2007 to assess the impacts of activities through scattering of its impact on the economic system, it is possible to estimate the repercussion on the economic system. The results reveal, that the activities that have high multipliers are key and concentrate their effects around them, while education taking a close to average and low interaction with the economic system multipliers, it exhibits greater scope impact.

Keywords : local development; education; economic effects; input-output analysis.
