This paper deals with reconsidering the reliability of the results obtained in theinput-output analysis of water consumption by Hristov et al. (2012) due touncertainty integrated in the data. The imprecision and uncertainty is studied withina workable fuzzy environment introduced by Beynon et al. (2005) where rankreversal is plausible. In addition, the water intensive structure of the Macedonianeconomy is investigated by applying Dietzenbacher eigenvector methodology (1992)in terms of water consumption. Similar as in the analysis in the work by Hristov et al.(2012), the water intensive structure in Macedonia mainly focused around agricultureand several industrial sectors is confirmed, given the fact that rank reversal wasabsent. Consequently, necessity to introduce changes in the agricultural productiontechnology and specialization in the production in this region or maybe reconsideringthe existing water pricing policy ought to be carefully considered by the policymakers.
