We have the 2014 data for all states. We used the same input vector that we used with our older data(2011) and examined the indirect effects for CA, MD, MN, TX, and USA and reported results using 2012 prices (the same as we did with the older data). There are some noteworthy changes from switching to newer data files: - In all five regions the indirect effect of wholesaler operations is much larger - the indirect multiplier increased from around .25 to .4 in California (increase of 80%), from .19 to .33 in Maryland (increase of 75%), and from .34 to .52 nationally (increase of 55%). Apparently in the new data, wholesale trade businesses are spending substantially more on inputs or the way they were measured previously was incorrect. Is there something we should know about any changes in the wholesale sector. The total indirect for all states increases by more 100% in jobs and in output.
