Hi, I'm analyzing a construction project with a budget of $1.686 million. I do not have data on the number of workers that were hired, or the amount of labor income. Also, a team of volunteers provided $285,000 in FREE labor on the project. Normally I would just input the $1.686 million into an event for sector 37, and it would spit out direct jobs, income, etc. When I do this, I'm IMPLAN is showing 11 direct construction jobs. But I'm concerned the model is overestimating the number of jobs because it doesn't account for the $285,000 in unpaid labor. What is the best way to handle this case? Thanks much, Danny
