In the publication of this article (Itoh 2016), there was an error in Table 1 which was published with subheading (a) missing from the table. The subheading should be: ‘(a) Endogenous Sectors, Each Region (Hokkaido pref. and the rest of Japan (ROJ)’. This has now been updated in the original article (Itoh 2016) and the table included below (Table 1).

In this empirical analysis, 10 industrial classifications are obtained by aggregating the publicly available interregional I–O table with 46 industrial sectors. One of the advantages of economy-wide model analysis (EMA) is its ability to evaluate the economic impacts on the regional economy by the differences between trade patterns and industries. For discussing the impacts on regional economies according to their differences of distribution systems, this SAM uses the commercial (commerce margin) and transportation (transport margin) sectors that are independent from other services. See Itoh (2008b) for details
