Hello, I have a question regarding MRIO outputs. We are conducting a study to measure the impacts of spending in 5 different sectors in specific regions in a state. Our goal is to measure all the impacts (direct, indirect, induced) of the 5 sectors’ spending in 4 regions (county 1, county 2, county 3, and rest of state). Because we are requiring direct impacts for each region, we were planning to create 4 separate MRIO models (i.e. county 1 activities with other regions linked; county 2 activities with other regions linked etc.). If we then added up all the impacts from each MRIO output, would we be double counting any of the impacts? The spending in each of the 4 MRIO models we are creating is unique (i.e. no double counting of industry sales in the 4 separate MRIO models). Thank you.
