    Hello, If it is a public university, the simplest way to model the impact is to import the State/Local Govt Education spending pattern (on the [i]Setup Activities [/i]page, go to [i]Activity Options>Import>Institution Spending Pattern>State/Local Govt Education[/i]), then input your impact value as the [i]Scenario Level[/i]. However, State/Local Government Education also includes primary and secondary schools in addition to higher ed. An alternative would be to use the private college sector (sector 392) as a proxy for public college and edit the study area data: ○ Output = Annual operations budget ○ Employment = employment ○ Employee Comp = total payroll costs, including benefits ○ Other Property Income = 0 Proprietor Income = 0 ○ Indirect Business Taxes = 0. By making the edit changes to sector 392 and rebuilding your model, you now have multipliers for your college. You can then run a typical industry impact on sector 462 using your employment value or budget as the Event value (it will be the same value as you entered in your edit change) and measure the impact in a typical fashion. The most appropriate way to model the labor income of a university or college is to use a Labor Income Change type impact.

    The two options Jenny mentioned have more detail. There are no single IMPLAN sectors that match the general categories you have. You have 2 choices: 1) sum your 3 amounts and run it through the more detailed spending patterns that Jenny noted. 2) distribute your 3 amounts to the detailed spending patterns. You would need to divide up the expenditures in the detailed patterns based on your 3 general categories. Then use the detailed coeficients as weights to distribute your values.
