It is my understanding that all output figures in the model are in the form of producer prices. In doing a contribution analysis and asserting that the results are a particular portion of the economy, is it correct to say that the overall figures for the description of the economy are in producer prices as well? Can you provide a link to a good example report written about contribution analysis? BTW, we are using figures from the model as our sales figures for several sectors because we do not have a primary source - we are applying various proportions to sectors as needed from economic census. By using the IMPLAN data, does this mean we should use the gross retail sales or gross retail margin? After the multi-sector contribution analysis adjustments as indicated, is it correct that the LPCs should be showing up as 100%?
