    Hi Dale, The differences between the Household demand for commodities in the Study Area Data section, the Household Local Commodity Demand in the social accounts section is in the word LOCAL. The former is gross demands, regardless of where they come from, whereas the latter is local demand for locally-produced goods and services. How these relate to the household industry demand is that a commodity can be produced by more than one industry and an industry can produce more than one commodity. So suppose my household demand for cheese (commodity 3056) is $1,000,000. Commodity 3056 is produced primarily by sector 56 (Cheese manufacturing), but also by sectors 55 (Fluid milk and butter manufacturing) and 57 (Dry, condensed, and evaporated dairy product manufacturing). If the market share for these sectors is 80%, 15%, and 5%, respectively (for example), then while my COMMODITY demand for Commodity 3056 is $1,000,000, my INDUSTRY demands will be $800,000, $150,000, and $50,000 for sectors 56, 55, and 57, respectively. 1. Electricity produced by households? Go to Social Accounts > Balance Sheets tab > View By: Commodity Balance Sheet and select Commodity 3031 from the drop-down list. 2. Electricity imported to region from out of region producers via the grid? In the same screen, click over to the "Industry Demand" tab and the "Institutional Demand" tab. The RPC will tell you the proportion that is locally sourced. 3. Electricity produced internationally (Canada Hydro) and imported (foreign source) from out of region? Please see this forum discussion: Thanks!
