    We often suggest using the private sector as a proxy for government activity, so this is fine. When setting up the impact, you will want to set Proprietor Income and Other Property Income to zero. When reporting the results, you will want to ignore any direct tax impacts.

    Typically, with analysis by parts, we import the industry sector or institution spending pattern (because we analyze payroll separately). How do you edit the proprietor income and other property income when importing an industry sector? Is this what you meant below when you suggested it?

    Usually in ABP (analysis by parts) you model the proprietor income as a labor income activity type. Other property income in considered a leakage in impact analysis and is not modeled.

    Hi, O.k., so is that why in the earlier response to my first question, it was suggested that I zero out those aspects? If so, I see how you can zero them out when running an event, but not when running an imported sector. Does that make sense?

    When you are running an impact on an imported activity, the events represent just the production function. Notice that the sum of the events is less than 1. The activity is only running the intermediate purchases. The value added elements are not included.

    O.k. - so, ignore Jenny's comment earlier because it doesn't apply to the ABP method we are using and do not attempt to customize the study area data for the Scientific R&D sector?

    Correct.
