    Are you downloading the matrices (type I and induced) and converting using the individual industry IBT/Output relationships to create a matrix of IBT multipliers? Or are you using the multipliers from the multiplier reports?

    I am doing the former: downloading the matrices (type I and induced) and converting using the individual industry IBT/Output relationships to create a matrix of IBT multipliers? Thanks Steve

    So just to be clear. I set up the spreadsheet to run off of changes in sales (output). For any given change in direct spending..the total sales, earnings, and value-added impacts are close to the reported IMPLAN results in the software. The reported jobs and IBT are different, however. Total jobs impacts are about 7% greater than reported by the IMPLAN software and IBT is about 20% greater than the results from the software. Thanks Steve

    I used the output multipliers from Explore>Multipliers>Export>To Comma Separated Value File and the IBT and output from Explore>Study Area to create the IBT to Output ratios and was able to recreate the same IBT impact per $1 million impact in Excel that the V3 software created in impact analysis. When using V3 to compare, be sure to set the event year to 2009 before setting the sales value to 1,000,000 and be sure to view the results in 2009 dollars.
