    Hi Steven! Thank you for your post, I apologize for the delay in our response. Unfortunately, the spreadsheet did not attach itself to this post. Would you mind try attaching it again or emailing it into: implangroup@implan.com Thanks!

    Hi Steven, Thank you for sending in the spreadsheet. This was very helpful for us to identify that you are using the 1st release of the 2013 data. We have since then released a 2nd version which included the following changes. The 2013 Update also reflects the most recent (2012) Commodity Flow Survey, which allows IMPLAN to use updated calibration data in its trade modeling system (i.e., the gravity model). The 2012 Commodity Flow Survey was also not published early enough to integrate into the first release. Finally, the 2013 Update also corrects an error in the estimation of state- and county-level OPI. This issue affected only some sectors in some regions, and resulted in over- or under-stating OPI, and, consequently, Output and Value-Added. Because this issue did not affect Labor Income or Intermediate Expenditures, it did not affect impact analysis results except in the case of contribution analyses where Total Industry Output is used as the Event value. We can updated your data to the 2nd release if you could please give us a call at: 651-439-4421 and our Support Dept. will assist you! Thanks!
