    Hi Georganna, Thank you for your post. I apologize for the delay of our response. The missing item is the effect of deflation. The Total Industry Output and Employment values you are using are based on Study Area Data and thus are in the year of the Study Area Data. Likely, the Event Year is 2014 or later, so there needs to be deflation to the Output per Worker value in order to complete the calculation. $87,221,779/614.2=$142,008.7577336373 Output per Worker $142,008.7577336373*1.026 (the 2012 deflator to 2014)= $145,700 for the 2014 equivalent Output per Worker $5MM/$145,700.9854347118=34.31 Thanks.
