A 2016 UK SAM with households disaggregated by income and a single external region



This is a 2016 UK Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) where the households have been disaggregated into quintiles based on the households' gross income. This SAM incorporates the 2016 input-output tables published by the Office for National Statistics, while information from the Living Cost and Food survey have been used to disaggregate the households. In this version of the SAM, there is only a single external region, the Rest of the World (ROW), an appropriate change to previous versions post-Brexit. This SAM is useful for projects looking to identify not only the economy-wide impacts of shocks to the UK economy, but also explore how households of different income are impacted. Moreover, it allows the exploration of shocks to specific household quintiles and how these could affect the wider economy.
