Construction of Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) for Kenya 2009
Client- African Growth and Policy Modelling Consortium- IFPRI- 2014
This SAM for Kenya 2009 was been built using the most recent and available data, supply and use table (SUT) 2009 and KIBHS data set 2005/06. The SAM 2009 captured the key characteristics of the Kenyan economy. Services have been found to contribute 50 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP), followed by manufacturing sector, which contributes 21 per cent. Agriculture sector contributed the rest and was taken to be a key sector in the economy because it was found to contribute an average of 30 per cent to rural household incomes. Agricultural production was also found to be capital intensive since it constitutes around 65 per cent of value added in the agricultural sector. This sector also forms a major intermediate input (over 40 per cent). Private sector savings finances investment demand in the economy. With a huge trade balance, it follows that there is a huge balance of payment deficit.
