    I consulted with another U of Minnesota IMPLAN user. He gets 6,200 jobs when he looks at the data, but I don't think he has updated for any of the new releases. I wonder if this is an error in release 2?

    Hi Brigid, Our apologies in having the data team dig deeper into your concern we discovered that the value for that sector in that county is indeed overestimated, and this is unfortunately true for both for Employment Compensation and Employment. A recent change we made in our data estimation methods between the second and third revisions was discovered to be the source of the overestimation. This affected just Sector 414, and only Yellow Medicine County in MN. The best fix, for now, would be to customize the Study Area Data. The corrected 414 Employee Compensation value should be 7% of the current value and Employment should be 3% of the current value. There is a specific order of operations for this process: 1. Adjust the Employment Value, 3% of 2,922.9 = 87.687 2. Select Update 3. Lock the Values 4. Switch to Edit Totals 5. Adjust Employment Compensation, 7% of 86,964,680 = 6,087,527.6 6. Select Update Thanks!
