Dear Sir/Ma’am, I am using the IMPLAN data for Washington State. My question is about the employment data for grain farming which has changed significantly in 2013. Looking at the industry detail (attached), the employment data for grain farming in 2011 and 2012 were 22,823.30 and 22,740.76, respectively. However, in the 2013 IMPLAN, the employment data for grain farming is 3,714.52. I am wondering about the cause of this significant change. Is there a different accounting method that IMPLAN used in 2013 as compared to previous years? Sincerely, Suzette [attachment=590]IMPLAN2011-IndustryDetail.xls[/attachment] [attachment=591]IMPLAN2012-IndustryDetail.xls[/attachment] [attachment=592]IMPLAN2013-IndustryDetail.xls[/attachment]
