Une Matrice de comptabilite sociale pour le Canada


  • Salem, Meir
  • Siddiqi, Yusuf


Le present document a pour objectif de decrire une premiere matrice de comptabilite sociale (MCS) produite pour le Canada. En partant de donnees pour l'annee 2000, les auteurs ont construit une MCS pour l'ensemble de l'economie canadienne. Une MCS etend les comptes nationaux pour permettre une meilleure comprehension du systeme socioeconomique, qui reflete les interdependances des groupes institutionnels. Le present document decrit une MCS de niveau macroeconomique comprenant trois extensions, ou applications, de niveau microeconomique. La premiere application, qui developpe le secteur des menages grace a l'integration des donnees des comptes nationaux et de celles des enquetes-menages, montre les revenus, les depenses, l'epargne et les transferts fiscaux du secteur, selon le quintile de revenu et d'autres caracteristiques des menages. Pour cet exercice, les auteurs utilisent une approche axee sur les transactions de marche; cette approche ajoute une nouvelle perspective a l'epargne des menages, qui s'ecarte des concepts de comptabilite nationale et des totaux partiels de controle du Systeme de comptabilite nationale du Canada. La deuxieme application developpe le revenu d'emploi selon l'age, le sexe, le niveau d'etudes et la branche d'activite de l'emploi. La troisieme application montre les impots sur les produits selon le type de depense et le type d'impot.
