I have been asked to look back at the effect of base realignment (BRAC) in our local community. When BRAC began in 2006, the army provided information about the number of troops, construction spending, contractors, etc. An impact study was done at that time using those numbers. Since then the army has continually revised its numbers almost annually until BRAC ended in 2011. My client would like me to go back and assess the impact given the actual historical numbers from 2006-2011. I currently have IMPLAN 3 with 2007 and 2008 data. Do you think that I would need to run a separate model for each year using that year's data file and that year's actual numbers from the army? Thanks, Ben
