"GTAP 7 Data Base Documentation - Chapter 7 I-O Table: Costa Rica"
by Sanchez Cantillo, Marco V and Carlos Ludena

This document describes the steps behind the creation of the first Input-Output (I-O) table of Costa Rica for the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP).1 The GTAP I-O table for Costa Rica is based on a Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) for the year 2002 built by Sánchez (2006) under the auspices of the Sub-regional Office of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) in Mexico. The 2002 SAM was constructed using data from the Department of National Accounts of the Central Bank of Costa Rica which proactively reviewed the SAM building process and approved the final product.

This document is divided into 4 sections. The next section explains the data and the construction of the 2002 SAM, its particular characteristics and its salient economic features. Section 3 describes the process of building the GTAP ready data base, outlining some of the assumptions made about the structure of the source data so it could be consistent with GTAP specifications. Finally, section 4 describes briefly the sectoral aggregation and breakdowns.
