Social and Demographic Accountingby Geoffrey J. D. Hewings
Pub. Date: 01/11/2009
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This book provides a state-of-the-art account of developments and applications of social accounts. It concentrates particularly on the methods of social accounting that Richard Stone, Nobel Laureate in Economics, developed and applied during his long and distinguished career. The contributors to the volume examine applications of social accounts in economics and demography, addressing issues of new formulations and specifications at the national and regional levels.Economic Structure and issues of structural change are investigated within the context of social accounts matrices, and Linear Expenditure Systems are used to model population change and household consumption. The importance of social accounts matrices (SAM) in generating Computation General Equilibrium (CGE) models, and the enormous potential that both SAM and CGE models have for policy analysis are stressed.
