social accounting matrices
2016

The Tunisia Social Accounting Matrix (SAM), 2012 was built with a focus on analyzing the structure and importance of the agriculture and trade in the Tunisian economy. This SAM helps to understand the linkages between agricultural production, factor income distribution, and households' incomes and expenditures. The 2012 Input-Output (I-O) and the supply-use table were the two main data sources used in building the disaggregated activity sector and commodity accounts. One of the most important added values of this SAM is the estimation of agricultural technologies.
