    Such calculations are not possible using IMPLAN model data.


    Household income by industry would require assignment of household income classes to industries. This would not be a clean assignment, as households could fall into multiple industry categories and some households would not fall into any industry category (retired persons). Data for such assignments do not, to our knowledge, exist.


    One could use occupational employment and wage data by industry to determine the different wage by employment types by industry and then connect those earnings to households. However, the above mentioned problem still exists and even if a worker earns $100k labor income, they might not be in the $100k household income class (perhaps another person in the household had a negative proprietor income of $50k, or they earned $500k in dividends).
