Hey IMPLAN, Awhile ago I purchased 2012 IMPLAN data for several states. I am interested in construction impacts across those states. However, the direct jobs for MO appear to be quite low (roughly one-half) compared to other states and compared to historical models. For Missouri, I am getting the following direct jobs per million dollars in output for the following sectors: #34=4.0 direct jobs, #36=3.9 direct jobs, #38=3.0 direct jobs, and #40=0.8 direct jobs. Again, these are quite low compared to other states, including high wages states such as CA and NY. In addition, the value added for these construction sectors (on a per million dollar output basis) is extraordinarily high. I am showing direct value added ranging from $800,000 to almost $900,000 per million dollars in output. Can you please investigate the data? Thank you, Alec
