This paper contains the first results of a comparative study of multiregional models. It deals with the causality structure of multiregional models. We focus our attention on: (1) The relationship between national production and regional production ("top-down" versus "bottom-up"); (2) The measure in which regional production is determined by variables from the demand side or from the supply side.

Their distinctions enables one to formulate a certain classification of multiregional models. The main part of the paper is devoted to a description and evaluation of an example of each model class. The following models are presented: CANDIDE-R (Canada); REMA (Belgium); BALAMO (Japan); MORSE (Sweden); NRIES (USA); and a model built by Fukuchi (Japan).
