Abstract: The aim of this work is to enable the implementation of disaggregation processes for specific and homogeneous sectors in Social Accounting Matrices (SAMs), while taking into account the difficulties in data collection from these types of sectors. The method proposed is based on the Wolsky technique, customized for the disaggregation of SAMs, within the current-facilities framework. The Spanish SAM for 2008 is used as a benchmark for the analysis, and the specific sector chosen for disaggregation is that of the Spanish Optical Sector.
