    We use County Business Patterns industry size classes to provide information about BLS QCEW non-disclosures. Butte, ID is a small (in employment) county, there are relatively few sectors that are disclosed. CBP shows 410 wage and salary jobs in private sectors and BLS shows 8000 wage and salary jobs (outside of agriculture) which is quite a discrepency. The few sectors that CBP shows apparently get overemphasized. You can easily edit the Butte model (Customize>Study area data> then select the two industries of concern) to reflect your local knowledge.
