Lesotho Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) 2007

Short Name: 
LSO 2007 SAM 

The Lesotho Social Accounting Matrix (SAM), 2007 is constructed using data that available during the second half of 2011. The SAM provides a detailed representation of the Lesotho economy. It separates 24 activities and 23 commodities; labor is disaggregated by 3 broad skill groups (high, medium and low); and households into 6 groups based on the rural/urban and income earning status of the household head. The SAM is a useful database for conducting economy-wide impact assessments, including SAM-based multiplier analysis and computable general equilibrium (CGE) modeling.
