Abstract : An exploratory approach to the problem of modeling the rural sector in Vietnam as an open static input-output model is attempted. A tentative classification of the agricultural economy into primary and secondary sectors is undertaken. Methods for data collection and uses are suggested. Anticipating the case where data for more than one time period are available a statistical estimation procedure for parameters is developed; a time series analysis of technical coefficients is also presented. The uses of the model as a predicting device is discussed and a linear programming approach to the problems of resources allocation is proposed. (Author)
