I am looking to calculate the % that each of the 440 IMPLAN industries spends on different transportation categories (e.g. truck, rail, water, air, and pipeline)for different BEA regions (e.g Far West, Rocky Mountain...etc). My thought is to apply the % for each transportation sector from a I/O use table to the total value added for each industry. Essentially I am looking to replicate the Transportation Satellite Account from the BTS. 1st, is this an appropriate method to follow and 2nd, Do I need to apply RPC's to the Value Added to get just regional impacts (e.g. within the BEA region)? Thanks
