Hello Great IMPLAN Forum, I've been looking at a lot of different posts and links about domestic exports but I'm not seeing a lot about domestic imports that I'm clear on. What I'm trying to do is to basically get a good measure of net domestic exports by industry. Under Explore-> Industry Accounts -> Institution Industry demand, it shows measures of Domestic Exports and Foreign Exports Under Explore-> Social Accounts -> View By Commodity Trade there are measures of Foreign and Domestic Exports by industry that are slightly different (I'm guessing because it's on a commodity basis?) I checked this description https://implan.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=221 but I'm not sure I'm understanding everything in the report (or the exported files). So how would I find domestic imports for an industry (how do you feel is the best way to go about it)? Also, when I look at the some models and look at the Institution Industry demand, how can an industry have negative foreign exports? Are these net measures already? Thanks for your time and any help you can give me.
