Good question!

The 2002 benchmark of the US economy is expected in late summer/early fall of 2007 (roughly a year from now).

We recently visited the Department of Commerce Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) who puts together the data, and know what the structure of the model will look like (e.g., sector mappings and organization). We are beginning our plans to get the energy and environmental data together so that we can release the entire 2002 model within one month of the final release of the economic data from BEA.

So overall my hope is to have the 2002 model posted sometime around October of next year. I wish it could be sooner, but of course our hands are tied by the BEA schedule.
