Hi! To modify trade flows in a customized model, the RPCs for specific commodities used by specific industries can be changed. For example, in the model I'm customizing, I'd like to modify the RPC for logs (commodity #3016) purchased by the Siskiyou County, CA veneer manufacturing industry (industry #96). I presume that to do that I would make the Customize option operational, then select the Customize Trade Flows option, then select the Industry/Institution RPC tab, then select logs (commodity #3016) from the drop down menu, then select the veneer industry, then highlight the RPC column, then enter my best independent estimate of this RPC, then save, and finally reconstruct multipliers. Is this the correct process to change the RPC for a specific commodity used by a specific industry?
