    Hello Kim, (1) The employment data for the 2011 Japanese model come from OECD and are originally in the Rev. 4 sectoring detail. This data is disaggregated using sectoral Employee Compensation from the OECD Japanese SAM data on Value Added. a. The employment data can be found here: (http://stats.oecd.org/Index.aspx?DataSetCode=SNA_TABLE3) b. The I/O tables can be found here (http://www.oecd.org/trade/input-outputtables.htm) under the Variable ‘Total.’ (2) Unfortunately, we do not currently have 2009 Total Personal Income data for Japan. I’m not sure exactly what you need in these terms, but I can suggest a couple of ways you might get this type of data. a. In the OECD published I/O table for Japan for 2009 (from the link above), if you select the Variable ‘VAL: Value Added’ there is a line for Labor Compensation by industry. This includes Wage and Salary workers as well as Proprietors and is total gross income for workers. [Note: This number is NOT net of savings, investment, taxes, or supplemental income.] b. There is also National Accounts data that summarize income here (http://stats.oecd.org/Index.aspx?DataSetCode=SNA_TABLE1). This table does not specify income by industry though. c. To address the estimation of 2009 Total Personal Income from estimates of 2011 Total Personal Income, this could be done a variety of different ways using a variety of different data. I hesitate to offer any particular solutions without knowing what you’d like to do with the data. Methodology would depend on the use case, in my opinion. Regards, IMPLAN Staff
