Hello- I was asked to conduct a national study on production in many states. Months after completing the national analysis, I was asked to complete a state by state analysis with the same data. For the first project, I used the national multipliers. For the second project, I purchased the state multipliers. The results were very different (~33% lower for the state-level analysis). I then conducted an MRIO, which closed the gap slightly (~3%). Is an MRIO the best methodology for each state? Is there a methodology that I am overlooking that will close the gap?
