Had urgent request on Friday to run an IMPLAN on 100 new Bank jobs in Stanislaus County. Received assistance from one of our academic stakeholders who has 2011 Stanislaus County data (as well as state). They ran the data and a bit later I ran the IMPLAN using the 2012 data set. The resulting numbers are different (not surprising there are differences) however there is large variability in the Direct Effect numbers, 36(2012) vs. 62(2011). I've attached the data. We both used Financial group 354 and both planned for 2014 year. I've attached the file showing the comparison (first tab, Impact Summary Comparison) contains the data from both IMPLAN runs as well as an index table comparing the results. Concerned that the overall number of jobs is much lower (172 vs. 206) using the 2012 data. Have I run something incorrectly? I have delivered another IMPLAN for food manufacturing using the 2012 data and want to ensure the numbers are correct. Thanks!
