HOW TO ACCESS CANADA PROVINCIAL
First, you will need to access your IMPLAN account and go to the project tab. From the project tile, click New Project in the top right of the screen.
A popup window will appear to create a new project. The Industry Set should be set to the 235 Industries. This Industry Set is specifically for the Canada Provincial data.
After the correct Industry Set is selected, name the project, then click Create Project.
After creating the Project, the Regions screen will appear in the Map View of Canada. Select a Region by clicking on the map, using the Search Bar, or from the List View.
Alternatively, you can also create a project starting from the Industry Aggregation Setting under User Preferences.
The current Industry Set for Canada contains the 235 Industries and their respective Commodities. The Industries can be grouped into the following categories:
- 1-27 Agriculture
- 28-36 Construction
- 37-118 Manufacturing
- 119-127 Wholesale
- 128-141 Retail
- 142-151 Transportation
- 152-223 Services
- 224-227 Education
- 228-229 Hospitals
- 230-234 Defence & Government
- 235 Taxes on Products net of Subsidies (TOPS)
The vast majority of the raw data comes from Statistics Canada, including distinct I-O (transactions) matrices for each Province/Territory, as well as Output, Value Added, Employment by Industry, Final Demand for each Industry by each Institution, and demographic data (land area, population, household counts). U.S. data are used for margins and deflators, and a small number of other sources are used for inter-institutional transfer payment rates (savings rates, tax rates, etc.). However, all monetary values in the data are represented in Canadian dollars (CAD).
The Statistics Canada I-O data includes information on inter-provincial trade, which allows us to enable multi-regional input-output (MRIO) capability with this release of Canadian data. This allows one to analyze the Indirect and Induced impacts in other provinces that may stem from a Direct impact in a given province. Please note that commuting is not a part of the MRIO capability for the Canadian models.
