The layout of health maintenance, customized programming hardware as well as the care services has become a trend.

This paper plans to use the regional computable general equilibrium model (RCGE) as the tool to make exploration on the assessment method of the impact of the development of elderly living industry on regional economy, which can be used to explain the interaction between industrial sectors in the overall economic system and can analyze the impact of economic activities in regional operation as well as the economy as a whole. In foreign literature, computable general equilibrium (CGE) discusses different regional issues such as tax, government budget and trade deficit, etc., whereas the domestic literature mainly discusses international trade, tariffs and tax reform, energy and environmental issues, etc. However, it is lack of the literature on regional computable equilibrium model by regional data. In addition to providing the reference for the public and private sectors on the elderly living industry investment and discussing the status quo of elderly living industry in New Taipei City, the study mainly focuses on the discussion of the effect of elderly living industry development by input-output model via the secondary data sorting, preparation of northern region input-output table, and proposes the estimation of investment benefit and the follow-up research proposals.
