The primary data used in this study are based on an input–output (I–O) table for Makassar City. Data from the social accounting matrix table along with other data sources such as elasticity values, exchange rate, and others are used to complete the I–O table data. The integration of sector aggregation in input–output and social accounting matrix tables uses mapping between the sectors contained in the primary data sources. This chapter explains how to construct the data for a CGE model. The explanation will be started with an understanding of the data structures of the I–O and social accounting matrix tables. The model’s coefficients and exogenous variables are estimated using the social accounting matrix tables. The CGE model requires elasticity parameter data and several of parameters.
