Abstract

This paper, in Portuguese, main goal is to perform a structural analysis of the Brazilian Northeastern region economy, adding in this way to the empirical knowledge of conceptual studies that emphasize the socio-economic progress of the Northeast region and its states.

The analysis was made possible by the estimation of an Input-Output system (reference year 2004) for the states in this region, which includes the relationship of the Northeast region and its states with the other regions of the country, and abroad.

By identifying key sectors to generate employment, income and production and by measuring the flows of goods and services, the results of this study are presented as elements that can be used to direct the actions of the Northeast Region Development Bank (Banco do Nordeste) and other institutions that have the mission of: a) foster the sustainable development of the Northeast region; and b) integrate this region into the dynamics of national economy.
