The paper attempts to build a Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) for India for 2007-2008. It consists of 78 sectors and nine categories of households which are based on occupation and location (i.e., rural and urban). The gross value added has been divided into three factors of production, i.e., labour, capital and land. Further, labour has been divided into three types, i.e., unskilled, semi-skilled and skilled. The main data sources used in the construction of SAM are CSO's I-O table 2007-2008, NSSO's 66th round of survey on consumer expenditure and NCAER's Income-Expenditure Survey, 2004-2005.

Abstract


The paper attempts to build a Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) for India for 2007-2008. It consists of 78 sectors and nine categories of households which are based on occupation and location (i.e., rural and urban). The gross value added has been divided into three factors of production, i.e., labour, capital and land. Further, labour has been divided into three types, i.e., unskilled, semi-skilled and skilled. The main data sources used in the construction of SAM are CSO's I-O table 2007-2008, NSSO's 66th round of survey on consumer expenditure and NCAER's Income-Expenditure Survey, 2004-2005.
