The port is a state run agency. Would employment for the port be under Other gov't agencies? Also if I want to know the impact of the port ( I have total salaries) would I just back that number out of the that industry.

  • State/Local water ports and airports are classified under \"other state and local government enterprises\" (see page 238 of the manual). If it is a water terminal or airport I would use the appropriate private sector as a proxy to get the more specific production function. You will need to edit the study area data for that industry to reflect the public employee compensation, budget and employment.

  • Would I need to reduce the local govt by the number of persons employed and then, in this case, increase the ware house sector in the private industry?

  • You could but the difference in multipliers in this case would not be significant.

  • You can but if you do you are assuming the output per worker and earnings to output are the same as the private sector. If you have port specific data you will want to edit the study data to reflect your relationships. See the tutorial on the IMPLAN website: http://www.implan.com/kb/question.php?qstId=81 if you have questions on how to do this.
