    Hello Jeff, Yes, you are correct and normally Employee Compensation should be lower than Output. However in this instance, because the sector you choose is a government enterprise and not an industry, this sector will behave differently because it relies on subsidies from the government (i.e. their ticket sales don't cover all their costs). This is true for this sector even at the U.S. level. However, there is something that you do want to check about this sector, and that is to ensure that the Study Area Data is reporting a negative value for Indirect Business Taxes, not for Proprietor Income. If you do show value for Proprietor Income(PI) instead of Indirect Business Taxes(IBT), you will want to edit this in the Customize>Study Area Data to reflect 0 Proprietor Income and the PI value in the IBT field. Once other thing to mention is that sometimes state school systems will actually use private corporations for their transportation needs. In this case, you could use sector 336 "Transit and ground passenger transportation". Let us know if you have more questions.
