    Hi Kevin! Thank you for your forum post. If you do not mind, so that we can provide you with a detailed response, specific to your situation; could you provide us with the region and data year you are using? Thanks!

    Hello, While you are correct to expect that New Construction is all local, Repair & Maintenance Construction does not all occur locally. Our Foreign Exports data for the R&M Construction sectors (and all other service sectors) are based on the latest BEA Benchmark, which indeed shows foreign exports of all 3 IMPLAN R&M Construction sectors. Domestic Exports for the R&M Construction (and all other tradeable commodities and services) come from our Gravity Model. A foreign export of Maintenance & Repair would be basically people from the U.S. going internationally to Maintenance & Repair. Please let us know if you have additional questions. IMPLAN Group Staff
