    Hello - 

    Generally speaking one wouldn't need to use Industry Contribution Analysis (ICA) for visitor spending. A rule of thumb is if the firm or event makes up less than half of the production in its entire Sector, there is no need to use ICA.  So for your second question, it would depend on how much of the total industry the sawmills and papermills occupy in your region (in terms of output).

    While it seems you are using IMPLAN Pro, the theory and background information found in the ICA article for IMPLAN might be beneficial to read.

    Please let us know if you have further questions on Industry Contribution Analysis.
