Impact of Sequestration and Reduced FY 2013 Funding Levels
The impact of sequestration and reduced FY 2013 funding levels for the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) necessitate that the Bureau's RIMS II program be discontinued. RIMS II multipliers for 2011 were not released in September as previously scheduled. BEA will continue to accept orders for multipliers for 2010 and allow previous orders to be downloaded while FY 2014 funding is provided under a continuing resolution (through January 15, 2014). Should funding cut by the sequestration be restored in FY 2014 as proposed in the President's Budget, the Bureau would reinstate the RIMS II program.
BEA understands that all its analytical products and statistical programs are of high value to private and public sector decision makers, and has given careful consideration to program reductions in an effort to minimize their impact on data users. For more information, see BEA FY 2013 Budget Impacts (PDF) in the BEA Newsroom.
What are RIMS II multipliers?
RIMS II input-output multipliers show how local demand shocks affect total gross
output, value added, earnings, and employment in the region.
How much do multipliers cost?
You may order RIMS II multipliers for any region or for any RIMS II industry.
Multipliers may be ordered for any region that consists of one or more contiguous
counties at a cost of $275 per region. For each region that you order, you will
receive Type I and Type II final-demand
and direct-effect multipliers for all the RIMS II industries in the region. Note:
Multipliers for each county or state within the region will not be provided.
State-level multipliers may be ordered for any RIMS II industry at a cost of $75
per industry. For each industry that you order, you will receive Type I and Type II final-demand and direct-effect multipliers
for all the states and the District of Columbia.
What industry detail is available?
- Annual series. These multipliers are available for 62 aggregated industries
(PDF). Multipliers from this series are based on more current but
less detailed national
annual input-output data.
- Benchmark series. These multipliers are available for 406 detailed industries
(PDF) and for the same 62 aggregated industries that are provided in
the annual series. Multipliers from this series are based on more detailed
but less current national
benchmark input-output data.
