A 1998 Social Accounting Matrix for Malawi

The last few years have seen a proliferation of attempts by various institutions to create a framework that would enable analysts to have a broad overview of all transactions in the Malawian economy.

The National Statistical Office conducted a major household survey which provided information on budget shares, incomes and many other social-economic characteristics of households.
