(PDF 125K)

This is a full regional SAM for the year 2002 and was developed as an input to a regional CGE model developed to analyze regional development strategies. The country was divided into three regions, Costa, Sierra, and Selva. The regional disaggregation relied on a nine sector estimate of regional production from the Peruvian Census Bureau (INEI) regional tax and expenditure date reported by the Peruvian Ministry of Finance and the United National Development Program. We used regional employment data to estimate sectoral production levels by region at a greater level of disaggregation than the nine sectors reported in the INEI data. The same household surveys gave us an estimate of household saving and consumption by sector and region.
