Abstract

The paper describes the construction of a regional agricultural Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) for Ireland for the year 2007. The SAM describes the full circular flow of money and goods in the Irish economy. The SAM includes 61 activities, 60 commodities, 40 factors of production, 7 households, 2 enterprises, government and investment/saving, 7 tax-related accounts, a trade and transport margin account and an external sector. Its construction starts from the Eurostat Supply and Use table for 2007. A prior unbalanced micro SAM with a regionalized agricultural sector is built with a variety of additional data sources. The final balanced SAM is estimated using the cross-entropy method.
