Downloading Your Data Order

- When you select from the Help menu, the application will launch and you will be prompted to enter your Order Number and Order Key. You can find your Order Number and Order Key on your order receipt.
**Your data order will only be available for download once the order has been paid or a valid purchase order has been processed.**
- Enter the Order Number and the Order Key into the appropriate field and click to initiate the download. The files you have ordered will appear on the screen, and the progress bars will track the progress of the downloads. You will also see additional fields appear in the download screen. Each data file that you download has a corresponding Trade Flows download as well as a Journey To Work file (these files will not be associated to zip code and congressional level files as zip code and congressional level data is not available for MRIO analysis). These files provide the commodity trade and the commuting information required for MRIO analysis.
