I'm looking into adjusting some of the deflators in the model to reflect real conditions for 2008-present and our own regional projections for 2011+. The user manual says that the deflators come from BLS' growth model. Are these from the most recent projections (through 2018), or from an earlier model? Unless I'm reading things wrong, which could very well be the case, there's a noticeable disparity between the 2008-2018 projected growth rates and those in the CommonDeflators table. Thanks.
