For the movie theater I was thinking that Sector 346 is not really appropriate since sector 364 is too broad. the jobs assoicated with the movie theater are more like a what you would get at a restaurant (e.g., servers, cooks, etc.)

For the residential builidng the jobs generated are a building manager, assistant manager, a few builiding maintenance staff, and a few leasing agents. I don't think IMPLAN sector 360 would be appropriate since the wages in that sector are pretty low due probably to a large number of partime workers.

Do you have any recommendations. Thanks in advance for your help.]]>

In looking at flows from activities to factors, capital in particular, there are some instances of negative numbers. For example, the datum for (capital, computer systems design services) is -2437.041 (data are for Virginia). Could you please explain why this is?

I sort of understand it as a thing where the industry's main outputs are capital goods (computer systems designs, ships, tanks, etc.), but it is not a complete understanding by any means.

Thank you.]]>

Subject: Differences between Model Years - by: James Curtsinger http://implan.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=80&id=18591&Itemid=35#18591 http://implan.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=80&id=18591&Itemid=35#18591
It is time to update the analysis. The industry sales figure has been adjusted slightly but basically it is the same model. We decided to run the analysis using 2012 data to better capture the current situation. Obviously, we expected the results to be somewhat different. The reason to buy new data is because things change. I was, though, surprised by the magnitude of the change in employment figures. The data are for Mesa County, Colorado
Here are the employment multipliers.

Year Direct Indirect Induced Total Type1 TypeSAM
2009 6.194 - 3.765 -- 0.690 - 10.649 - 1.608 - 1.719
2012 13.629 - 2.573 - 0.943 - 17.145 - 1.888 - 1.258

The obvious factor is that you get more than twice as many direct jobs per million dollars in 2012. The Type SAM multiplier is smaller but is working on a much larger number.

Running $1,000,000 with an event year of 2009 for each model gives the following in terms of employment. 2009 Model:10.6 2012 Model:23.3

Is it possible to look at the data underlying the direct employment multipliers to identify a change in the county's economy that would explain the difference between the two data years? We didn't make a big deal out of the employment numbers because they are confusing to interpret, but they were reported in tables in the draft. It would be nice to have an explanation to offer for why the figures are so different. I have been toying with a couple of possibilities but would like to hear if you can shed any light on this for me.

Thanks for your time.]]>
