RPC, gross inputs, and regional inputs

How can you have an RPC percentage when gross inputs and regional inputs are equal to 0. For instance in the MN-WI region 3012 - Dairy cattle and milk RPC = 84.79, gross inputs = 0, and regional inputs = 0. The percentages for those inputs are also 0. How is this possible?

    Hi there!

    The RPC, or Regional Purchase Coefficient, is the proportion of local demand for a Commodity met by local production. Each Commodity only has one RPC, meaning that all Industries and Institutions purchase it at the same rate, but that doesn't mean that all Industries and Institutions purchase it.
