    Hello Barry,

    Thank you for your Community post.

    This is a symptom of the bridging of occupation data to IMPLAN sectoring. For our non-occupation data, we bridge NAICS to IMPLAN according to the table below.


    Table 1: IMPLAN to 2012 NAICS

    Photographic services

    54192

    459

    541940

    Veterinary services

    54194

    460

    5419A0

    Marketing research and all other miscellaneous professional, scientific, and technical services

    54191, 54193, 54199


    Our occupation source data provides 5-digit NAICS detailed occupation data for:

    • NAICS 54192 - Photographic Services
    • NAICS 54194 - Veterinary Services


    Our occupation source data provides 4-digit NAICS detailed occupation data for the parent NAICS:

    • NAICS 5419 - Other Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services


    Because we need to disclose the occupation data and we don't have detailed data for NAICS codes 54191, 54193, and 54199, we bridge 460 to the parent NAICS 5419 (for which we do have the occupation data required to disclose).

    As the parent NAICS includes the occupation data of the children NAICS, sector 460 will share many similarities with 459 (the inclusion of occupations such as veterinarians being one of them).

    The matrices are provided in an editable format to allow for user adjustments. If you prefer to remove veterinarians (and other occupations) from sector 460, you can adjust the detail ratios by zeroing the ratios for those occupations and then normalize the occupational employment and wage ratios for the industry.

    Hope this helps and let us know if you have any additional questions.
