What is a SAM A layman's guide to social accounting matrices (English)

This paper is intended as an introduction for readers who have no previous familiarity with social accounting matrices. It assumes nothing more from the reader than a rudimentary knowledge of national income accounting. Starting from the simplest formulation, the paper introduces step by step many of the main features of a social accounting matrix in its fully developed and more complex form. An explanation is given of the relationship between social accounting matrices on the one hand and national accounts, input-output matrices and multipliers on the other.
