In the Data Library, we have Commodity data going back to 2001. This way you can quickly look at changes by Commodity and Year for your region.
The Commodity data are available for all counties and states in the U.S. for all IMPLAN Data Set Years. The data include, for each region, year, and commodity, foreign exports, gross final demand by institution, and institutional sales by institution.
Each year IMPLAN uses thousands of data points from more than 90 sources to create the IMPLAN datasets. Most of IMPLAN's Commodities are based on definitions put forth by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). Among our main data sources for the Commodity data are the following:
- BEA National Product and Income Accounts (NIPA) Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) data for national household commodity demand
- Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Consumer Expenditure Survey (CES) data, used to parse the NIPA PCE data out to the 9 IMPLAN household income groups.
- Census Bureau foreign trade of shippable commodities.
- State and Local Government demand and sales are derived using data from the latest Census of Government and the latest State and Local Government Finances Survey, controlled to current NIPA control totals.
- Federal Government demand and sales are derived from the latest BEA Benchmark tables, controlled to current NIPA control totals.
- The Annual Survey of Manufactures (ASM) provides data on inventory additions and deletions.
Additional details can be found in the article IMPLAN Data Sources.
