I am working on the economic contribution of an existing industry (maple). Because the maple industry is included in the other crop sector I created a new sector by customizing study area data, industry production, commodity production and trade flows using data that I collected. I followed the procedure available on your website to do the economic contribution. Looking at the direct effect in the impact summary I find that the employment number is fairly close to my estimates but the labor income and value added are overestimated by about $18 million for labor income and $9 million for value added. How can I address the overestimation. Can I use the same SAM multiplier that I used to get the output number and change employee compensation and proprietor income when I set up the events?
