    Hello, Without knowing which Sectors you have used for your Events, we can only provide some generic information. - Retail Sectors were used. These Sectors have 2 types of values, Gross Retail Sales (purchaser prices) and Gross Retail Margin (retailer costs). If you selected GRS, and are working with purchaser prices, this will cause a significant reduction as it will skim off everything but the costs to the retailer operating its stores. -LPP was modified. This should be set to 100% as the tourists in the survey are assumed to spend 100% of their amounts they specify in the region in question.

    Yes, we used the following sectors: 499 Hotels and motels, including casino hotels 501 Full-service restaurants 502 Limited-service restaurants 503 All other food and drinking places 400 Retail - Food and beverage stores 403 Retail - Clothing and clothing accessories stores 405 Retail - General merchandise stores 404 Retail - Sporting goods, hobby, musical instrument and book stores e 488 Performing arts companies 489 Commercial Sports Except Racing 493 Museums, historical sites, zoos, and parks 496 Other amusement and recreation industries 402 Retail - Gasoline stores 442 Automotive equipment rental and leasing 406 Retail - Miscellaneous store retailers Many of these are estimates of larger spending categories of things such as "Entertainment" or "Shopping". Therefore, your first explanation seems to be valid as I didn't change LPP. How can I change to the model to include the purchaser prices?

    Hi Joseph, Since you have significant differences in your results you will more than likely using Purchasing Prices or Gross Retail Sales. When you entered your Sector and your Input, you were prompted with the pop-up window with selecting either Gross Retail Sales or Gross Retail Margin; select Gross Retail Sales. This will only analyze the impact of the portion of the Retail operations. Without knowing the exact goods sold, this is all that you can account for because there is now way to determine any other part of the Value Chain. You can view the Industry Sales that will be applied to the Multipliers if you select Preview in the top left corner of the Setup Activities screen. But you can also verify that the differences are occurring in just those Sectors by going into your Detail Results screen and sorting the View By: Output by the Direct column. As long as your Event Year = your Dollar Year for View all your Direct Effects should be equal to your Event Industry Sales except those for the Retail Sectors you used. While it is key that the reduced Margin value is used to calculate the Indirect and Induced Effects, you will want to go back and use your original sales value as the Direct Output for your impact, and also adjust your Totals for the un-margined Direct Effect value.
