I'd like to come up with an economic impact analysis for our university using existing studies and using a multiplier proxy from existing studies. I know this won't be accurate but still can come up with a reasonable range where our multiplier might fall. In the long run, we plan to buy the data and run the IMPLAN model. Any thoughts on how I could accomplish my short term goal? I already have a survey of literature but what factors should I consider when choosing a range for the multiplier? Things such as types of industries in our county, leakage, population, etc, what else? What would make the multiplier lower, or higher? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
