The input-output tables provide useful information regarding the economic and social situations of countries. The world input-output database (WIOD) enables simultaneous comparison of economic and social situations of countries worldwide. The Europe Commission has provided the WIOD for 27 members of the commission, 16 large non-Europe countries and rest of the world from 1995 to 2014. The input-output of the economic sectors of Iran are aggregated with those of the rest of the world. Hence, it is not possible to study the situation of Iran in the world table. In addition, it is not possible to examine the reciprocal effects of the economic policy of Iran or other countries on production sectors of each other properly. To this end, the Iran input-output table for the year 2011 is highlighted, where, in the same year, Iran stood 44th in WIOD. Thus, in addition the new table allows the researcher to study the situation of Iran in the world economy, it make possible to reveal the effect of internal policy on economic sectors of other countries and vice versa.
