Hi. There are industries not existing in Washington State, such as tobacco and cotton (Sectors 7 and 8 respectively). However, when I checked the Trade Flows for tobacco farming: Customize>Trade Flows>Industry/Institution RPC>Tobacco – The table shows two sectors: Tobacco product manufacturing (Sector 111) and Scientific research and development services (Sector 456). The tobacco farming RPC is 0.029451. Does this mean that about 2.95% of the demand by Sector 111 and Sector 456 are met by local tobacco farmers? If so, why is there an RPC for tobacco farming if it is a non-existing industry in Washington State? If I am misunderstanding something, could you please provide a clarification? Thank you.
