The paper documents constructing a 2001 social accounting matrix for Tajikistan in order to develop a model of the country. As necessary and reliable statistics are difficult to obtain for compiling a social accounting matrix, alternative techniques and approaches have been used to extend, create and calculate the data set. A consistent and balanced 2001 social accounting matrix has been achieved using Kuroda’s Method. The constructed 2001 social accounting matrix consists of 74 accounts with 27 commodities accounts, 27 activities accounts, 2 factors of production, 3 institutions, 11 tax accounts, 1 non-tax payments account, 1 subsidies account, 1 capital account and 1 rest of the world account. As construction of a social accounting matrix for Tajikistan has not yet received attention in the literature this paper will fill that gap.
