Hey IMPLAN, This summer, I ran into an oddity regarding sector #40 for some states. I ran into it the other day when I purchased 2012 data for CO and MI. For sector #40, the average output per worker is over twice the national average and out of line with the other construction sectors (especially sector #39) and with other states where this anomaly is not encountered. As a result, every million dollars in output results in about 2 construction jobs. This seems way too low. I emailed you during the summer and you reported that there was a problem with the preliminary government data. After a recent phone call with IMPLAN support, I re-downloaded what I thought was corrected data. However, the problem still exists. Can you please investigate? I have encountered this problem for MA, PA, WA, MO, CO, and MI.
