3. Capital Accounts
For fulfillment of the objective of this project, SNA Mexico data on gross capital stocks and net stocks at acquisition costs and at replacement value through the Perpetual Inventory Method (PIM) was used for the 1990-2008 Annual Series.
The challenged that is now being undertaken is the calculation of the time series, with the economic activity breakdown required for the LA-KLEMS; this task is being developed through statistical and mathematic methods supported on data from the Economic Polls and Census, which allows to obtain product-capital elasticity coefficients by economic activity.
Information Technologies measurement and its role in productivity
The quantification on stocks, employment an input is made through total supply of ITs sectors and through statistical data available for these economic sectors, as well as with the calculation of technical coefficients on the use of this technology, obtained through the Supply and Demand Tables, Economic Censuses, annual polls and administrative records, which will allow to identify their contribution in each ITs related factor (KLEMS):
The next table shows the economic variables which have been calculated to date, for the 1900-2008 series, at both current and 1995 constant prices.
Taking into account that the sum of its three required components equals total intermediate value for the referred economic activity, its composition at current values was obtained from 1993, 1998 and 2003 census data, as well as manufacturing polls and administrative records for energy, transportation and all other services. The resulting values were adjusted to the intermediate consumption value registered in the output accounts of each activity.
For calculation of these aggregates, the intermediate consumption for each activity was taken as constant, and its composition was obtained through deflecting its three components with price indexes calculated from energy rates, producer and consumer prices and implicit IC prices.
WP2 and WP3: Labor Account and Capital Account
We have a considerable progress in the analysis and conciliation of basic data available for the labor account and the capital account, so we expect to deliver the results in time and on the required format .
Data related to job posts and worked hours, by sex, age and education are available to NAICS sub-sector levels, for the 1900-2008 period, as a result of the ENE-ENOE data re-processing.
Labor Account Progress.
For the 1990-2008 series, technical coefficient were calculated with the following data sources.
