This paper analyses changes in the industrial structure of Ireland between 1975 and 1985. Confining our analysis to the inter-industry matrix, we use the Synthetic Biproportional Project method, which has significant advantages compared with the more traditional input-output coefficients or the RAS method. The results highlight, inter alia, the weak linkages between "strategic industries" such as office machinery and chemicals and the rest of the Irish economy.
