We are updating an analysis that was conducted in 2012 using the 2010 data. This update uses the new 2012 data. All of the inputs to this analysis have increased from 2012-2014. However, after we modeled all of this new activity the total impact declined from 2012 to 2014. The two data questions I have are. 1. In the area we are looking at the Shannon-Weaver Diveristy Idex when for 0.70588 in 2010 to .69867 using the 2012 data. Is this decline causing this problem? 2. The analysis uses several retail trade and government expenditures sectors. Several of the sectors have had major declines in their Local Pruchause Percentage. The most problematic for our analysis are listed below. 328 Retail Stores - Sporting goods, hobby book and music LPP in 83.1% 2010 changed to 73.7% in 2012 360 Real estate Establishments LPP of 80.3% in 2010 changed to 52.4% in 2012 324 Retail Stores - Food and Beverage LPP of 91.2% in 2010 changed to 76.9% in 2012 330 Retail Stroes Miscellaneous LPP of 99.1% in 2010 changed to 81.9% in 2012 432 Other state and local Government Enterprises LPP of 97.3% in 2010 change to 79.24% in 2012 Did IMPLAN make any mythological adjustments between the 2010 and 2012 data set that could accout for this change? Are there any other factors that could exsplain this decline in LPP? Thank you for your help!
