I am modeling a new industry where I know the number of employees. I also know some of the spending detail, 10 events that are part of the spending pattern; leasing equipment, tires, engineering costs, commercial construction, etc. Is it appropriate to run the employment through the industry change activity, in addition to each (10) individual spending pattern events. The spending pattern only provides the coefficient summing to 1, for the 10 events, but that does not match with my dollar totals. Therefore is seems necessary to run individual activities (10) with one spending event per activity, then combine them along with the industry change (employment)in the final scenario. Am I double counting? Or is there a more efficient way to do this? Thank you.
