Multifunctional Analysis of Regions through Input-Output. (Documents)
What is it
MARIO is a python package for handling input-output tables and models inspired by Pymrio . MARIO aims to provide a simple & intuitive API for common IO tasks without needing in-depth programming knowledge. MARIO supporst automatic parsing of different structured tables such EXIOBASE, EORA, EUROSTAT in different formats namely:
When databases are not structured, MARIO supports parsing data from xlsx, csv, txt files or pandas.DataFrames.
More than parsing data, MARIO includes some basic functionalities:
Aggregation of databases
SUT to IOT transformation
- Modifying database in terms of adding:
New sectors, activities or commodities to the database
Adding new extensions to the satellite account
Scneario and shock analysis
Backward and forward linkages analysis
Extracting single region database from multi region databases
Exporting the databases into different formats for scenarios analyzed
Interactive visualization routines
MARIO has been tested on macOS and Windows.
To run MARIO, a couple of things are needed:
Being in love with Input-Output :-)
The Python programming language, version 3.7 or higher
A number of Python adds-on packages
For some functionalities a solver may needed (optional)
MARIO software itself
Recommended installation method
The easiest way to make MARIO software working is to use the free conda package manager which can install the current and future MARIO depencies in an easy and user friendly way.
To get conda, download and install “Anaconda Distribution” . Between differnet options for running python codes, we strongly suggest, Spyder, which is a free and open source scientific environment written in Python, for Python, and designed by and for scientists, engineers and data analysts.
You can install mario using pip or from source code. It is suggested to create a new environment by running the following command in the anaconda prompt
conda create -n mario python=3.8
If you create a new environment for mario, to use it, you need to activate the mario environment each time by writing the following line in Anaconda Prompt
conda activate mario
Now you can use pip to install mario on your environment as follow:
pip install mariopy
You can also install from the source code!
A simple test for Input-Output Table (IOT) and Supply-Use Table (SUT) is included in mario.
To use the IOT test, call
import mario test_iot = mario.load_test('IOT')
and to use the SUT test, call
test_sut = mario.load_test('SUT')
To see the configurations of the data, you can print them:
To see specific sets of the tables like regions or value added, get_index function can be used:
print(test_iot.get_index('Region')) print(test_sut.get_index('Factor of production'))
To visualize some data, various plot functions can be used:
Specific modifications on the database can be done, such as SUT to IOT transformation:
reformed_iot = test.to_iot(method='B')
The changes can be tracked by metadata. The history can be checked by calling:
The new database can be saved into excel,txt or csv file:
Python module requirements
Some of the key packages the mario relies on are:
The current version of Mario has achieved a test coverage of 49%. This coverage includes a comprehensive 100% assessment of the fundamental mathematical engine. Additional tests are currently in active development to enhance the package’s reliability. Mario utilizes pytest as its primary tool for conducting unit tests. For a more detailed analysis of the test coverage pertaining to mario’s unit tests, you can execute the following command:
pytest --cov=mario tests/
This project is under active development.
More examples will be uploaded through time to the gellery.
More parsers will be added to the next version.
The next version will cover some optimization models within the IO framework
