We completed a shift-share analysis utilizing the Industry Detail data for a county in arizona. the analysis was 2001 compared to 2009. there are many implan sectors that have 0 employment in 2001, such as general merchandise, etc. this does not seem accurate. in addition, things like "bowling centers" had hundreds employed in 2001 and only double digits in 2009. in this rural county it is unlikely that there was hundreds employed in bowling centers and there were certainly general merchandise employment in 2001. there are many more than i can describe here. is there a reason for these discrepancies?
