I am trying to make a point, but I am starting to write as if I was talking to a friend.

For the following sentence, is there any formal/academic equivalent of "there is absolutely no way"?

Based on the regional unemployment rate alone, there is absolutely no way the program can effectively determine ...

A blunt and boring version is this: Based on the regional unemployment rate alone, the program cannot effectively determine ...

But I want something powerful.

    Yes, it's fine. Things are frequently impossible in academic papers. If you want to be super-formal, verging on stiff, you could say 'it is not possible' instead.

    Just make sure that's true 100.00000000% of the time. It's a very high standard. It doesn't mean very difficult, it means not possible under any conceivable human circumstances.
