AGRODEP Toolbox on Methods for Updating and Balancing Social Accounting Matrices

Long Name: 
AGRODEP Updating SAMs Toolbox 
Primary Contact: 

This Toolbox provides for methods for updating and balancing Social Accounting Matrices (SAMs) using Rwanda SAMs from 2006 and 2011 as an example. The objective is to update the initial SAM (2006) using four separate methods and compare each updated SAM with the final or observed SAM (2011). The four methods explored here are Cross-Entropy, Ordinary Least Squares, Huber, and Hellinger methods.

Accompanying Technical Note 17 provides further details on each method, and walks users through the comparison process.
