I am looking at the impact of increasing employment in various sectors by 1000. First, I am creating new broad sectors. For example - Aerospace & Defense is an aggregation of 5 sectors (aircraft mfg, aircraft engine & parts mfg, other aircraft parts & auxiliary equipment mfg, guided missile & space vehicle mfg, propulsion units & parts for space vehicles & guided missile mfg). I then increase employment in this broad sector by 1,000. The results show no gain in construction. I understand that this is because of the backward linkage thing rather than having forward linkages. However, I know that if 1000 new jobs were created, there would be some impact on new housing and/or multi-family housing construction. What do I do to incorporate this into the results?
