Regional Trade in IMPLAN: Models, Data and Visualization


Estimates of county-to-county commodity trade flows underlay key aspects of IMPLAN’s economic impact model – including regional purchase coefficients and multi-regional input-output. IMPLAN's Trade Flow Data are now available for use in external analysis and applications via IMPLAN’s Data Library. Join us on Tuesday, August the 22nd at 11 AM, ET where we will begin by exploring IMPLAN’s process for building trade flow data from conceptualization to source data. We will also discuss the best way to access these data in IMPLAN Data Library, both in data tables and visualization. Finally, we will discuss how clients are currently using trade data and additional applications.
