    Hi Allen, Thank you for your Forum post. Wages in IMPLAN are based on observed wages from administrative data. IMPLAN uses Census of Employment and Wages (CEW) estimates of wage and salary compensation and employment, where disclosed and the CEW data is supplemented with Census Bureau County Business Patterns (CBP) data where CEW are not disclosed. Attached is a link to the article that talks about our employment and labor income source data. In essence, the answer to your question really depends on whether the wages and income that people actually earn is "union" or "market". Please let us know if you further have any questions. Regards, IMPLAN Staff
