I am trying to describe the loss of payroll that's due to net in-commuters for a particular industry change in my state (Oregon). I looked in Social Accounts>IxC Social Accounting Matrix>Aggregate SAM and looking down the the Employee Compensation column, I see the compensation divided amongst the households, followed by some government and corporate payouts, and finally an amount for Domestic Trade. Is this amount the loss, or leakage, of payroll due to the net in-commuters? In this case for Oregon, model year 2009, I see $5.136 billion in Domestic Trade out of a total of $87.410 billion in total Employee Compensation. Does this mean about 5.9 percent of employee compensation leaves the state in the model due to net in-commuters? And as a follow up, if I wanted to show a stronger effect of in-commuters for my industry change, say 25 percent, how would I go about modifying this in IMPLAN? This would result in a smaller induced effect, but the same direct and indirect effects, is that right? Thank you! -Mike
