I've identified a potential error with the Yellow Medicine County, Minnesota data. IMPLAN is showing nearly 3,000 jobs in the scenic and sightseeing transportation and support activities for transportation sector. I am familiar with the county and can not identify any reason for these jobs. County Business Patterns has 117 jobs in transportation and warehousing. QCEW reports under 900 jobs in trade, transportation, and utilities. According to QCEW and County Business Patterns, there are around 4,000 TOTAL jobs in the county. IMPLAN is showing 9,000. Obviously, these 3,000 jobs are an outlier and significantly affect the data for Yellow Medicine County. Can you verify these numbers?
