Social and Demographic Accounting

G. J.D. Hewings, M. Madden

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


This book provides an account of developments and applications of social accounting methods, focusing on applications of social accounts in economics and demography and addressing issues of new formulations specifications at both national and regional levels. Themes covered include economic structure and issues of structural change, focusing on changes in final demand composition; fundamental economic structure, and hierarchical decomposition, within the context of social accounts matrices. Economic-demographic relationships are also covered, with special attention on extended input-output models, including consistency problems, linkage of macro- and micro-economic approaches and linear expenditure systems. The importance of social accounts matrices in generating computable general equilibrium models and their potential application in the field of policy analysis, particularly in the regional context, is stressed.
