We use the implan software to view the output of each industry. We choose a state, set a 440 aggregation, use the SAM's and set up the multipliers. After we have done that, we explore the multipliers and export the output multipliers to excel. With this new 2010 data, we have found that there is a value of "1" for the direct effect and a value of "0" in the other columns. In the past, 2009 and earlier, there would be a value of "0" in the Direct effect column. Why is it this year that the direct effect column has a "1" instead of a "0" when there are zero's in the other columns?
