    Hello, You can search sectors that might best fit with the Sector Search function found in the Help menu. We suggest sorting by NAICS and typing in single keywords at a time. In your sheet, the interest payments would be attributed to a financial Sector. In the 536 scheme, 433-466 are the financial Sectors. You would choose the Sector based on the one closest to the payment recipient type. When it comes to handling labor payments, they should be attributed to Employment Compensation. The basis behind this is the way that the accounting system is handled. In the equation Output = Intermediate Expenditures + Value Added, Output is Gross Revenues and thus includes expenditures on both Intermediate Expenditures (the year-over-year purchases that are absorbed in the production process) and the labor expenditures (which on many farms will also include Proprietor Income to the farmer). The Labor component can be added to the results at the end or run in the same Scenario, but because it is handled differently it requires a different Activity Type, the Labor Income Change. We suggest taking a look at the [url=]basics of Analysis By Parts[/url], and then following through an example of modeling an impact using the [url=]Analysis By Parts[/url] methodology.
