Hello, I have a couple of quick questions concerning the model results. Here they are: 1. For example, say we have a $2,000,000 million dollar construction investment for a retail store. Also, I know the number of construction workers on the project is to be 50 workers. When I run an industry change activity for the impact of the $2,000,000 construction investment, the model returns a direct employment impact of 25. So, my question is, what exactly does the 25 direct employment impact mean? Shouldn't the 50 new construction workers equal the direct employment figure? 2. When utilizing the Analysis-By-Parts technique, does the final result include the employment effects of the new activity? For example, there's a $2,000,000 expansion in the carbon manufacturing sector and 50 new employees to be working there. Normally, I would run two scenarios to measure the impact of these two activities; Industry Change with a $2,000,000 value for industry sales and another industry change activity with the 50 employee figure. With ABP however, I am not quite sure how to generate the separated results. I have an industry pattern activity paired with a labor income change activity resulting in one table of results. So, does ABP combine the two activities or am I missing something? Thank you for your help. It is GREATLY appreciated. Tymon
