The 1994 Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) for Peru was assembled as part of a project aimed at analyzing the distributive effects of trade liberalization in a general-equilibrium context. The SAM disaggregates the production activities, labor and households accounts, and opens up the possibility to engage in a detailed analysis of the productive structure of the economy, as well as of the income distribution channels. The accompanying documentation describes both, the macroeconomic and microeconomic SAMs, paying special attention to data sources, assumptions, and balancing procedures.
The Peru SAM was prepared by Alonso Segura of the IMF and Juan Manuel García of the Group for Analysis for Development (GRADE) as part of the UNDP project Is trade liberalization good for Latin America’s poor?. The data have been made available and documented by the authors and IFPRI under the sponsorship of the World Bank.
