A regional business incubator has been in operation for the past 20 years. They would like to use IMPLAN to estimate the annual impacts over the past 10 years. For example:
- In Year One (2010), the incubator assisted development of a computer repair shop, a security business, and a home health company;
- In Year Two (2011), the incubator hosted the above mentioned businesses plus assisted an appliance repair company and a management consulting business;
- In Year Three (2012), at the incubator, the computer repair shop closed, the other 4 businesses remained in operations, plus an engineering firm was started ...
We will be provided annual employment and industry NAICS for each of the businesses to be included in the analysis. I could use the current IMPLAN data to model the annual changes occurring over the ten year period, but the results would be based on 2018 purchasing coefficients and data.
Can I access the data for 2010, 2011,...2017 to run models for each of the relevant years? Would I need to download versions of IMPLAN software for each of the non-current years I wish to model?
