- SAM / Input-Output Modeling Data (BEA). We have updated two sources from the Bureau of Economic Analysis: NIPA tables and Gross State Product (GSP).
- Railroad Retirement Board Statistics: Active Employees by State, 2013; Total Employees by State and County, 2012. This source provides railroad employment estimates for employees not covered in QCEW.
