State & Local Governments may find a variety of reasons to use IMPLAN in their day-to-day activities. IMPLAN can assist you in understanding the potential fiscal impacts of policy decisions, cutbacks, attractions and Events, and potential furlows. It can also help when weighing the benefits of competing programs,* and of using industry tax abatements to draw local companies, by providing a clearer view of the economic portion of the picture. Because IMPLAN does track the tax collections associated to projects and employee spending, IMPLAN can also help your department examine the potential revenues associated to a project.

 

 Here are some examples of what you department can examine with IMPLAN:

*While IMPLAN can be used for studies that include social impact elements, these are not directly ascertainable through the IMPLAN, nor will IMPLAN be able to provide any qualitative understanding of problem. However, as shown in the Carbon Emissions study, the social/political impact can be tied to an economic factor like Output, IMPLAN can be used as a compliment to the social/political analysis.

 

sl_getting_started

If you are interested in using IMPLAN in your department and are new to the IMPLAN System, we welcome you. This next series of steps will help you in preparing to purchase IMPLAN and begin your analysis. If you already use IMPLAN and would like to see additional information, click here to jump to the next section.

 

The IMPLAN Economic Modeling System allows users to build regional economic models based on their actual local economy, rather than on data extrapolated solely from national or state level information. IMPLAN models allow you to work with a region that you design, whether you are interested in looking at the economy of a city, a county, an MSA, a Congressional District, a state, or a multi-state region.

image029

Step 1: Determining the Data You Need

In deciding what data you need, it is important to consider a number of aspects of your project’s needs and your intended audience. While most of the time your program, park or services are likely located in a single city, county or state, you may want to consider your impacts on other neighboring regions in certain circumstances. If you have strong inter-linkages with another region, you may want consider using IMPLAN’s Multi-regional Analysis functions to see how changes made in your local government may affect surrounding areas. In IMPLAN terms the region you decide upon is called the Study Area.

 

See a breakdown of available IMPLAN Data.

 

When you chose your first data set you can select to be conservative. If you decide later on that you need additional files, they can be downloaded directly through your software.

 

Step 2: Prepare Your Numbers

IMPLAN will require you to have specific inputs to drive the economic impacts. When looking at the impacts of your government’s operations, programs and services, we recommend knowing your total annual operational costs, total employment, and total payments to labor.

 

Interested in modeling tourism and recreational spending? You will need a detailed list of what the tourists purchase in your area and how much they spend on each of these items.

 

If you are assessing local businesses coming into or leaving the region, or the impacts of a potential or current businesses on tax revenues, you will need to know at least one of the following pieces of information: Industry Sales, Employment, Employee Compensation or Proprietor Income. However, it is important to keep in mind that IMPLAN’s accuracy increases when the user specifies as much of the industry’s information as possible.

Step 3: Order Your Data

Data orders can be taken by phone during our business hours, or you can use our online ordering system any time of the day or night. Want an invoice, but need to submit for payment? You can choose the ‘Check by Mail’ option and when you complete your order, an invoice will automatically be emailed to your account.

 

If you are new to IMPLAN, you’ll also need the software. This is provided to new users at no additional cost when they make their data purchase.

 

If you would like to try to take the IMPLAN software for a trial run, you can download a demo of the IMPLAN software here.

Step 4: Build The Model

Building an economic model for your selected region is easy with IMPLAN Version 3.0. The model building process occurs in 3 quick steps:

1.              Name the Model and save it.

2.              Select the desired data file(s) to be incorporated

3.              Click Continue. The Model begins to build and then opens to a screen that provides you with an economic overview of your region.

 

Once the Model is built you can use it to view information about the economy, change Model assumptions to recreate Multipliers, or perform economic impact or contribution analyses.

Step 5: Determine Your Analysis Methodology

Depending on the type of analysis you are interested in, a variety of analysis methods and modalities may be available to you.

 

Which method you chose may depend on whether you are looking at private businesses or your government’s public operations, as well as, the level of detail available to you. When examining new businesses or future economic development, whether or not the industry you are interested in is currently present in your region, or is an available Sector in IMPLAN, may also affect how you frame your impact analysis. Since institutions don’t behave like industries in IMPLAN a few extra steps may be required to look at institutional operations.

 

Additionally, IMPLAN includes built in modalities to assist you with your analysis. These include deflators, margins, regional availability of commodity purchases and net commuting estimates.

Step 6: Enhance Your Skills

The IMPLAN software is easy to use; however, ensuring the numbers you enter into the software are appropriate, that you are applying a method or modality correctly, and that you correctly understand your results can be more of a challenge. To assist you in this, we offer a variety of self-help and assisted options. There is always more to learn.

 

The Basic Support pack is provided with every IMPLAN purchase. This includes access to our online quick start guides, reference manual, and the availability of our forum support- all at no additional cost. Please note that our forum is answered by trained IMPLAN technicians, it is not simply a user to user forum.

 

We also provide the Level 2 Support Agreement. This purchased agreement provides you access to trained IMPLAN support agent who can assist you by phone or email with your analyses. This package also provides for some project consultation with our staff economists and a project review.

 

In person training is also available. MIG has an in-house computer lab, where you can come and learn tips and tricks for using the IMPLAN software. If you don’t have travel in your budget, you may also want to consider our training DVD and Principles of Impact Analysis Manual.
