Constructing a Social Accounting Matrix for Sardinia

Guido Ferrari, Giorgio Garau () and Patrizio Lecca ()

Working Paper CRENoS from Centre for North South Economic Research, University of Cagliari and Sassari, Sardinia

Abstract: Recently, the Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) has been resurrected as a policy analysis tool and, in the last decade, attention has been paid to SAM multipliers, as well as to the use of the SAM as a benchmark for computable general equilibrium models. This paper constructs a SAM for the regional economy of Sardinia that can be used for policy evaluation and impact analysis. A mixture of approaches is used from simple compilation and decomposition methods to procedures for matrix estimations and matrix balancing.
