Working Papers from Regional Research Institute, West Virginia University
This resource document provides a method for streamlining the IMPLAN-GAMS SAM -> CGE work flow. We present the step-by-step procedure for constructing a Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) in IMPLAN, reading the data into GAMS, saving the SAM in spreadsheet format to facilitate subsequent direct editing, and using the edited spreadsheet SAM as input directly into GAMS for further CGE modeling.
