We typically find that the employment estimates in the IMPLAN data sets are larger than our QCEW estimates, which makes sense since IMPLAN employment includes the self-employed. However, for our current project we are looking at sector 499 which shows employment of 34,875 versus QCEW for NAICS 72111 of 40,738. This seems to be a pretty significant difference. Any ideas for why?
