I would like to know if I am interpreting the Institution Industry Demand report correctly. I am looking at the financial services cluster in my region. I uses sectors 354 through 359. I added up all the institution demand (HouseholdDemand,FedGovDemand, StateLocalDemand, Capital Inventory, DomesticExports, ForeignExports) and divide Domestic and Foreign Exports by this total. Is it correct to say about 14% of the total demand comes from outside the region? This would seem like a rather low export level & not necessarily a cluster that would drive regional growth. Also, why would sector 358 (Insurance agencies, brokerages, and related activities)have all demand from domestic exports?
