Social Accounting Matrix (SAM)

SAMs expand upon the traditional I-O tables to also include transactions between Industries and Institutions and between Institutions themselves, thereby capturing all monetary market transactions in a given time. IMPLAN can thus more accurately be described as a Social Account Matrix (SAM) model, though the terms I-O and SAM are often used interchangeably.
