    Hi Emma, Thank you for your post. If you have all of the Employment, income and sales data; you can certainly enter those and constrain the Direct to a quarterly impact, but it is important to note that Indirect and Induced results will not be calculated quarterly (thus there is the issue of how you go about increasing Employment to reflect a quarterly value rather than an annual value) and there is also the aspect that the same jobs carry from quarter to quarter so the only jobs that would be supported between quarters would be those that showed increase (i.e. if Q1 has 25 Direct jobs, 10 Indirect jobs and 15 Induced jobs and Q2 has 25 Direct jobs, 10 Indirect jobs and 15 Induced jobs, there would be a zero job change between Q1 and Q2. If Q3 then had 26 Direct jobs, 10 Indirect jobs and 16 Induced jobs, there would be a job increase of 2 jobs (likely one new one supported) one of which was Direct and the other Induced. If then in Q4 there were 20 Direct jobs, 5 Indirect jobs and 10 Induced jobs there would be a net loss of 6 Direct, 5 Indirect and 6 Induced jobs as compared to the Q3 numbers). I hope that this helps. Thanks!
