Las matrices de Contabilidad Social constituyen una importante base de datos que proporcionan información rele¬vante sobre la estructura económica y social de un área para un determinado período de tiempo. Esta información permite realizar un análisis integral de la estructura productiva de dicha área. En este artículo se presenta la Matriz de Contabilidad Social (MCS) para España correspondiente al año 2007 a precios básicos. A partir de ésta se identifican los sectores clave de la economía española a través de tres metodologías dife¬rentes: la metodología propuesta por Rasmussen, el método de extracción hipotética y, finalmente, el método de la Matriz del Producto Multiplicador. El análisis de los sectores clave con el uso de estas tres metodologías da lugar a conclusiones que, en algunos casos, son muy diferentes. Por otro lado, los resultados se enriquecen al introducir como endógenas las cuentas de Trabajo, Capital y Consumo en el modelo. Social Accounting Matrices are important databases that provide relevant information about the economic and social structure of an area for a period of time. This information allows researchers to develop an integral analysis of the productive structure of that area. This article presents the Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) for the Spanish economy for 2007 at basic prices. From SAM for Spain the key sectors of the Spanish economy are identified across three different methodologies: the methodology developed by Rasmussen, the hypothetical extraction method and, finally, using the technique of the Multiplier Product Matrix. The key sectors analysis using these three different methodolo¬gies lead to conclusions that, in some cases, are very different. In addition, the results improve when labor income, capital income, private and consumption are included as endogenous accounts in the model.
