    Hi Hubert,

    Local Purchase Percentage (LPP) represents the portion of the Direct Effect that takes place within the study region. If the entirety of your Direct takes place within the study region, then your LPP should be set to 100%. Most analysts determine their inputs based on the study region; therefore, the default LPP is 100%.

    The rates at which an industry purchases intermediate inputs locally are determined by the Regional Purchasing Coefficients (RPCs) for each commodity. These will automatically be applied.

     You can find more about using Local Purchase Percentage at the link below:
