IMPLAN has 2018 data for the five U.S. Island Territories based on the 2012 benchmark. At this time, the data is only available in IMPLAN Pro with 544 Industries.
Data sets for Island Areas are not nearly as comprehensive nor timely compared to the U.S. Nor are Island Areas included in the US NIPA accounts, so there are no overall controls as there are for the U.S. states and counties.
The Five US Island Areas are:
- American Samoa: AS
- Commonwealth of Northern Marianas Islands: MP
- Guam: GU
- Puerto Rico: PR
- Virgin Islands: VI
BLS Covered employment and wages (CEW) is only available for PR and VI.
Census County Business Patterns cover all five island areas and are the main source for employment and income data.
For Agricultural Industries, the Census collects “Outlying” areas – which includes the 5 island areas. The 5-year census for outlying areas is published several years after the corresponding Census for the US.
Military employment comes from the Department of Defense: https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/appj/dwp/dwp_reports.jsp.
GDP data is available in BEA news releases for US territories. The data is for overall GDP and is not Industry-specific, but it does provide controls. An example of such a report is can be found at this link.
There is some miscellaneous data collected from local government sources. Guam probably has the best government statistics collection, but data is still sparse.
Ratios and updates to the current data year are derived from US relationships and CEW data for Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands (as proxies).
