    Hello Sylvia, The values in the Summary Results table represent the dollars that are spent in the region due to local (to the region; therefore, domestic if using a national model) purchases of goods and services. Note that retail services are a commodity. Purchases of products produced outside the study region but sold through a local retailer will result in local purchases of the retail services commodity. In addition, a Household Income Change activity spreads spending across consumption, taxes, and savings. Taxes and Savings are considered leakages and will not result in further impacts, but the event input amount entered in the Household Income Change activity will be reduced by the portions that go to savings and taxes prior to being applied to the Household consumption. Regards, IMPLAN Staff
