    Hi Paul, The case studies all use Washington County 2007 data, so the 2008 structural matrices are not involved. If you are building the model using the demo software, there are no trade flows so the results won't match (but they should be fairly close). If you are building with econometric RPCs in V3 then it will be the same issue as if you were using the the demo software. If you are building the model with trade flow RPCs in V3 then the results should match.

    Jenny, thanks for your response. I am using V3 (non-demo) software and built the model using the trade flow RPC's. Any other ideas for the source of the variance? There are some screenshots attached for further clarification.

    Hi Paul, I notice that your model contains St. Croix County, WI. The case studies use Washington County, MN. When building the Washington County model you will need to point the software to the Implan Data Files > 2007 > MN folder, and then select Washington County.
