Although LCBA model merely delivers rough estimates due to its uncertainties, as previously mentioned, it LB42708 can be modified to be more accurate. For instance, we can replace the single global average importation intensity with regional importation intensities for East Asia, West Europe, North Africa, North America etc. These data can be further separated into importation intensities for each country when detailed importing source data available. Frankly speaking, the main limitation for LCBA model is data availability, which is the same for MRIO/EEBT models using I–O framework.
