    Hello Dan, The good news is that there is nothing wrong with underlying data or the calculations, which was part of why it took us so long to determine what the source of the issue really was. The issue is arising with the accuracy of the database storage in the background of the Model. Because of the software's ability to only store 7 significant digits rounding errors can accumulate in the values especially where there extremely large numbers are concerned, as is the case in your study region comparisons. This is also exaggerated because, while each individual county's Trade Flow values are pretty precise, when you add many counties together, little imprecisions add up to be significant imprecision. We are currently testing a fix that will resolve this issue in the software, but we aren't sure exactly when the release will be. We would be happy to let you know as soon as it's available.
