The 2009 Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) details the flows of incomes and expenditures through the Scottish economy. These data are essential for modelling the response of the economy to proposed changes in, for example, government expenditures and taxes. The SAM is built using primarily National Accounts data from Scotland and the UK. More detailed versions of the SAM are currently being developed.

The dataset comprises the 2009 Scottish SAM (Excel), the Income and Expenditure Accounts (Excel) and the undergirding methodology (pdf)
