Constructing a CGE Database Using GEMPACK for an African Country

Computational Economics, 2015, vol. 46, issue 4, 495-518
This paper describes how we transformed the 2002 Ugandan Supply Use Table (SUT) into the required structure of a database for the static Ugandan CGE model Dixon et al. (ORANI: A multisectoral model of the Australian economy, 1982 ). We describe the unique features captured in the Ugandan SUT as well as that of the CGE database. We highlight the structural differences of the published data and that of the CGE database. In describing the SUT we identify data issues, such as negative capital rentals and omitted data entries that had to be addressed before the database could be constructed. The ideas put forward in this paper describe, in a pragmatic manner, not only how to transform published data into a CGE database, but also how to create an additional sector in the CGE database. For the Ugandan CGE database, we created an additional Oil sector. Copyright Springer Science+Business Media New York 2015
