    Correct, there is no tourism industry, rather it is the expenditure pattern (restaurants, lodging, gas) that generates the impacts. There are a large number of IMPLAN tourism studies out there, hopefully one will be similar to yours and have a spending pattern per visitor specified. My inclination would be to use the county (unless Chicago sits in one corner), but it really depends on the audience. If one of the cities commissions the study, they don't usually care how it benefits the other two.
