    See the last file on the \"downloads\">\"implan supplemental files\" for a conversion for 2007 data. For 2001-2006 IMPLAN data sets there is a file called NIPA FTE-ptft.xls (or something like that) in the /files directory of the IMPLAN software CD.

    If I have 100 traditional guardsmen who only work one weekend per month. Would I use them in my analysis?

    Hi Katie, [url=https://www.google.com/url?q=https://implan.com/V4/index.php%3Foption%3Dcom_multicategories%26view%3Darticle%26id%3D628:628%26Itemid%3D14&sa=U&ei=9PsUUryaGoS52QWaw4GIDQ&ved=0CAcQFjAA&client=internal-uds-cse&usg=AFQjCNFXJrKcoi2FFwrepOSihcCO-R__hQ]This link [/url]describes how jobs are handled in IMPLAN and [url=http://implan.com/V4/index.php?option=com_glossary&id=231&Itemid=57]this link [/url]defines them. Typically you will count jobs regardless of whether they are full-time, part-time or limited part time, as they are still 'a job'. However you may want to modify other information like Labor Income for your analysis. Could you please give us a broader idea of what it is you are trying to model, so that we could give you a fuller response to your question? Thanks!

    Thank you for your help. I am conducting an economic impact study for a military facility. For employment they include the National Guard. However, only a third of the workers are considered full time and the remaining are considered traditional guardsmen (only work one weekend per month. So I can still include their total employment and modify their income?

    Hi Katie, Just a couple of quick clarifications on our part. To model this you will need to use the Analysis-by-Parts method for the military Sector (Activity Options>Import> Institutional Spending Pattern>Federal Defense). For this impact then, you will need to have an operational value to trigger the spending pattern. Do you have a value for this? If so then yes you will count all the Employment but you might want to specify which jobs are Full-Time and which are guardsmen. With this methodology, you can keep the Sector for government payroll in the spending pattern and keep the value of the income it estimates based on your operational value (Activity Level). In this case the total operational value, will likely reflect the lower income paid to guardsman, and you don't need to make any adjustments. Alternatively, you can delete that Event for payroll, normalize the spending pattern via Events Options> Change All> Normalize Events, reduce the value of Activity Level by the payroll portion and run a Labor Income Change Activity to examine the payroll effects of the base. This will allow you to use known Labor Income values, if you feel that the percentage in the spending pattern may not reflect your specific circumstances. Please let us know if you have any additional questions, or need further help with this.
