I am working in a new model. I am trying to calculate the number of new jobs created (direct, indirect, induced) from new spending as a result of new rental households moving into a particular region (County and City) and spending their available (after tax and savings) income. If I use household income change as the activity, it only calculates induced jobs. Question 1: What are the inputs for both setup activities and events? Question 2: Does the model adjust for rent payments so not to include and overstate income available for spending that will need to be used for rent payments? Question 3: Should I assume a local spending capture rate since not all of the available income will be spent locally - or does IMPLAN make an adjustment? Thanks!
