    Hello Barry, A reduction in the purchase of local inputs results in reduced local impact. Between 2012 and 2014, Local Net Commodity Supply has increased a little but Local Domestic Commodity Demand has gone up significantly. In addition, the proportion of the commodity that is being exported has risen. The result is a reduced RPC, as you've noticed. We do note, however, that your reported 2012 RPC is higher than the most current 2012 RPC value. There was a second 2012 Data release. Please contact IMPLAN Support for instructions on acquiring this newer data. In regards to grain farming employment, you can find details of our methodology changes over the years in our Release Notes article. The item of most influence is the new Census of Agriculture, which was incorporated into our data in 2013. In addition, the 2013 Data was also revised. Your employment for the grain sector in 2013 does not match the most recent release. IMPLAN Support can also assist you in obtaining the most recent 2013 data as well.

    What are the correct values for the 2012 distilled liquors RPC and 2013 grain employment? I'd like to report to my client and it will take awhile for me to reanalyze with new models.
