Multi-year question

    We suggest using the 2008 model and setting the Event Year for each year's expenditures to the year in which those expenditures took place. IMPLAN's built-in deflators will then convert those expenditures to 2008 dollars before applying them to the multipliers. Note: the Event Year needs to be changed before you enter any values. Then, when viewing the results, you can change the Dollar Year for View to whichever year you'd like (e.g., 2012). You can create an Activity for each year's expenditures and then run them all as a single Scenario or you can run each year's expenditures as a separate Scenario. If you run them as separate Scenarios, you will want to be sure that the scenario results are all in the same Dollar Year for View before summing them.
