Summary

This book, the first of its kind, presents a new Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) for the Indian economy for the year 1997-98. It provides detailed and consistent information on production for 60 sectors, and on income distribution for six categories of occupational households, separately for rural and urban areas. Using fresh figures from India's Central Statistical Organisation, the authors also present the SAM for 2002-03. In addition, this book goes into details of the concepts, methodology and limitations of the construction of SAM.
