Este artículo presenta una metodología para la estimación anual de Matrices de Contabilidad Social (SAM, Social Accounting Matrix, en terminología anglosajona). Esta metodología ha sido desarrollada para construir estas matrices a partir de datos procedentes de las Cuentas Nacionales y de una SAM conocida “a priori”. Se realiza una aplicación para la economía española y el año 2000. Se presentan dos versiones calculadas ambas utilizando el método de “Minimización de la Entropía Cruzada” (“Cross Entropy Method”): una con formulación combinada origen-destino y otra con formulación input-output simétrica. Este trabajo puede resultar útil para los responsables de la elaboración de las cuentas nacionales y para los estudiosos de la evaluación de políticas públicas. También es una referencia para obtener de forma anual los multiplicadores contables y para los Modelos de Equilibrio General Aplicados (MEGA). This paper presents a methodology to annual estimation the Social Accounting Matrices (SAM). This methodology has been developed for build these matrices using available data from the National Accounts and “a priori” know SAM. We present an application for the Spanish Economy for 2000. We present two versions, both calculated using Cross Entropy Method: one following use-income formulation and other with symmetric input-output formulation. These SAM can be useful for national accounts maker and for the public policies evaluation. Also is a reference to obtain annual accounting multipliers and developed a Computable General Equilibrium Models.
