2005 Ghana Statistical Accounting Matrix (SAM) Launch
The 2005 Ghana SAM will be officially released on 15 November 2007. The SAM was a joint initiative between the Ghana Statistical Services (GSS) and IFPRI under GSSP. It is the first official SAM since 1993 for Ghana and the final version of an earlier and provisional SAM for 2004 jointly built by GSS and IFPRI. The update and extension was made possible by the release of new data, including the 2005/06 Ghana Living Standard Survey (GLSS5), the 2003 Industrial Survey, and revised agricultural data from the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MOFA).
