Hi - I am updating the multipliers in my analysis from 2010 to 2012. I have noticed major changes in the Sector 429 Other Federal Government Enterprises sector. In 2010 the direct employment multiplier for the United States Sector 429 was 2.905, but the 2012 model has a multiplier of 53.008. The same results exist in all of my regional models - - the sector 429 direct employment multiplier in 2010 is approximately 3, but the direct employment multiplier in 2012 is greater than 50. Is this multiplier correct? If so, can you explain the large increase? This has a very significant impact on our results and I am sure we will get questions. Thank you.
