The Customize Region menu is used for adding an Industry that doesn't exist in the Region, editing the Study Area Data, or just simply accessing per worker ratios for each Industry in the Region.
Find the Customize Region menu by clicking the Region Details icon for a given Selected Region.
The option to “Customize Region” is available from the menu within the Region Details.
Clicking Customize Region will take you to the Customize section. Select a Region by clicking the Industry from the list on the left-hand side or by searching for the Industry in the search field.
For each Industry that exists in the Region, there will be information about the number of Employees, Total Output, Total Employee Compensation (EC), Total Proprietor Income (PI), Total Other Property Income (OPI), and Total Taxes on Production and Imports, Net of Subsidies. Output, EC, PI, OPI, and TOPI per worker (/w) can also be found on the right-hand side of each Industry Study Area Data table.
These values are all editable. Be sure to make Employment value changes first, working from top to bottom. This Employment value will be automatically split across Wage & Salary Employees and Proprietors utilizing the national distribution for the Industry we are adding. Negative values can only be entered for PI, OPI, and TOPI.
Once edits have been made to Industry, the Industry will be marked in the Industry list. The Industry list filter allows you to filter by edited or unedited Industries.
Save changes by clicking Complete Customization in the bottom right corner of the screen. Be sure to give the customized Region a new, clear name based on the edits you made.
Once the customization is completed, the customized Region will appear in the Selected Region field and display its build progress. Once the build is complete, the Region Details icon will appear. Customized Regions are marked with the following icon: , and can be used across your Projects once created.
