This study stresses the capacity of a Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) with a highly disaggregated agricultural sector (AgroSAM) to provide a descriptive analysis of the agri-food and other bio-based sectors. It focuses on Spain but also performs a review for every European Union Member State to detect potential agri-food and other bio-based key sectors. It uses the software SIMSIPSAM to detect backward and forward structural linkages as well as key sectors with the aim of revealing potential growth, a key element in the design of public and private policies. Finally, it presents the Spanish employment multiplier, in order to stress which sectors are the most significant in term of job creation.
