Double-counting Employees

    Hello Denise, When running your impact as the overall umbrella the fact that the employee works part time at both locations will not make a difference. This is because Employment is not a driver in the Model. IMPLAN Employment is actually a headcount, so in traditional IMPLAN accounting the one person has two jobs and thus would be accounted for as two jobs in the Employment count. The actual economic driver is Employment Compensation, so this is where you want to be sure that you don't double-count. It sounds like you might have enough information to know the total compensation of each subset of the umbrella, so you would want to customize these figures so that the compensation matches the compensation portion of each part of each subset of the umbrella, so that the employee isn't getting higher than appropriate compensation for their work. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. IMPLAN Support Team
