I have been trying to build a social accounting matrix (SAM) after building an input-output table (IOT). In the IOT, I had to distinguish between total intermediate demand (which includes import of intermediate products) and domestic intermediate demand (which excludes imports). Therefore, I had to look at trade data to perform a breakdown of imports per intermediate and final products.
I was wondering if SAMs also used this breakdown of imports information. Since IOTs are used as a source of information to build a SAM, I figured it would. I know SAMs include intermediate demand information (see the following image, it's called intermediate inputs), but I don't know if it refers to total demand or domestic demand. Does anyone know?
Thanks in advance!
