2010 PA Induced Impacts seem too large
Hello, Thank you for your previous help. I'm doing an economic impact analysis of the natural gas industry in Pennsylvania and noticed that the induced impacts or Type II multipliers are much larger using 2010 data compared with prior estimates using the 2009 table. For example, using the 2009 data, the total employment impact is 139,889 but the estimate using the 2010 table is 226,595. The direct impacts show no difference because I used the same changes in both model runs. The indirect impacts are slightly smaller but the induced impacts account 88,662 additional jobs. I have attached a spreadsheet summarizing the difference in employment impacts and can send you the models as well (tired once and the server timed out). Perhaps there is a glitch the data? Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Tim C.
