    Here are some first thoughts on it. We had a training class last week Tuesday - Thursday so there was not a lot of time to look at it. The Gross inputs sum to 1.0. The sum of NationalAbsorptionCoeficients is 1.008 for industry 510. The NationalAbsorptionTotals is not quite right for most/all industries and is really different for 510. When you look at balance sheet or edit Industry Production, all sectors' Total Absorption Value sums to 1.0000001 (VA = -0.0000001) - even though most sum to <1 in NationalAbsorptionCoeficients. The RegionalAbsorptionCoeficients also sum to 1.000001, so it is not just the reports. Sector 561 Bait Ship has compensation but no employment. There is no direct Employee Compensation or Proprietor Income in the multiplier reports. Setting Number of industries/commodities to 570 in the StudyAreaGeneralInformation generates a division by 0 when creating social accounts. It would be good to fill in 441 to 570 with at least dummy sectors that don't exist in their impdb file. Also commondeflators only goes to sector 440 and 3440, which will likely cause impacts to puke when trying to deflate to 2010. We will look at it more today.

    The number of industries and commodities in the StudyAreaGeneralInformation table is still set to 440. Needs to be 570.

    The Trade Method needs to be set to Econometric RPC not Trade Model. This is done in User Preferences. Try making those changes and let us know if it helped.
