    Hi! Thank you for your post!! Both Sectors 69- Malt Manufacturing and 70- Wet Corn Milling are similar in spending patterns. You can take a closer look as to each Sectors Spending Pattern by using the Software: Explore > Social Accounts > Industry Balance Sheets > Commodity Demand. If either spending pattern does fit your study, IMPLAN does allow you to customize those intermediate expenditures. If this is something you are interested, please let us know! So that we can provide you with detailed information, would you mind providing us additional information into your study.

    Thank you The reason I am considering using sector 70 is that sector 69 is not in the model for my region. As you suggest the spending patterns are similar therefore I could run an impact for sector 70 that would essentially give me the same results if I ran an impact with sector 69 Am I correct in assuming the above? Thank you

    Hello, You can model this impact using the sector that exists in the region, or, what we recommend is following the Analysis By Parts methodology. The Analysis By Parts methodology allows you to use sectors that may not exist in your model. It is a little more complicated than a standard Industry change activity. It involves using a Industry spending pattern Activity and using a Labor Income Change Activity for modeling the payments to workers in the malt manufacturing. You can follow along and use your Sector, 69 in this example: [url=http://implan.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=359&Itemid=1797]Analysis By Parts[/url] Let us know if you have further questions.
