Estimates of direct and indirect waste, energy, and material input use resulting from New York State economic activity are derived from existing input-output and natural resource and energy data bases. The work provides both a generally applicable methodology and an empirical example using national level natural resource and energy use data. The primary contribution of the work is to demonstrate a methodology for estimating life-cycle impacts from regional level economic activity. The approach is demonstrated using indirect economic linkages in an empirical example for the state of New York.
