Ludeña, Carlos E.
In the interest of updating the input-output data of Paraguay in the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) database to support economic analysis in this country, the Inter-American Development Bank commissioned the update of these data using the data from a 2009 social accounting matrix (SAM) developed by Cicowiez and Santander (2015). The document describes the process of transforming the 2009 SAM of Paraguay into the GTAP format. Further details on the GTAP database may be found at www.gtap.org.
