    Our methodology is alway subject to change over the years. However, the definitions of the data elements have not changed. The biggest change I can think of for forest relates to the 3-digit NAICs (2-digit SIC) data source for proprietors and proprietor income we get from BEA REIS (now REA). Under SIC, logging was part of wood products, so the relative high number of proprietors in logging got spread over all wood products. Under NAICs, logging was removed from manufacturing so that the proprietor problem was greatly minimized. The differences over time (2008 REIS is shown because 2009 was not released at the time of the 2009 IMPLAN data) - These are state totals for all industries: 2000 Oregon REIS Employment - 2,118,403 2000 Oregon REIS Labor Income - 94,853,510,000 2000 Income/worker - 44,776 2008 Oregon REIS Employment - 2,339,488 2008 Oregon REIS Labor Income - 137,569,700 2008 Income/worker - 58,803

    Thank you! I get the SIC vs NAICs differences and timing of data, with that said is it possible to compare the 2000 IMPLAN data with the 2009 data set or do you caution against it? I also assume it's not possible to load 2000 data into the Version 3 IMPLAN software to creat a more comparable data set?

    It is possible to create V3 models with 2000 data but you will have to use econometric RPCs as there is no trade flow data for 2000. Loading it into V3; however, does not change the data and multipliers between V2 and V3 are only slightly different (incorporated the household to household interactions). Link to older structural matrices for v3: http://implan.com/V4/index.php?option=com_docman&task=cat_view&gid=160&Itemid=7
