Abstract: The paper details construction of a regional social accounting matrix (RSAM) for Russia. The RSAM is constructed for the SUST-RUS regional computable general equilibrium model. The SUST-RUS model is aimed on assessment of sustainable development policies in Russia. In the process of the RSAM construction different data sources were used: input-output tables, SNA data, Russian interregional trade data, tax and budget data, household surveys, as well as Russian trade statistics. The paper elaborates on the availability and reliability of data resources, methodology of RSAM construction. The constructed database corresponds to year 2006 and consists of 7 federal districts of Russia, each represented by 32 industries, 3 household types, regional and federal government. SUST-RUS RSAM is constructed according to top-down approach, namely, regional social accounting matrices are approximated and balanced by a country-wide matrix and relevant regional data, including inter-regional trade. One of the major steps of construction of the country-wide social accounting matrix is disaggregation of the Russian input-output table suitable for the purposes of the SUST-RUS project. Methodology of the input-output table disaggregation is discussed in details. Regional social accounting matrix for Russia for the SUST-RUS CGE model.
