Hello, I want to put together an ROI study about economic development projects, their impact and the ROI of incentives and tax abatement. This analysis would go back over 5 years worth of projects and I am trying to think about the best methodology to complete this project. Some projects had impact analyses done at the time of the project and some may not; is it possible and reasonable to use a old set of data instead of the most recent one? Given the evolution of industries within an area, I would think that to be most accurate the impact analysis should be done for each year since the beginning of the project activity with the parameters of the project in that year. Right? So is there a way to use 2010 to 2015 data? And how do you incorporate new jobs impact and capital investment impact? When creating a basic impact analysis of new jobs, does it usually take any type of capital investment into account? (I don't think it does) Any idea, help or knowledge of a common practice is appreciated! Thank you!
