Hi, Two questions related to measuring tourist expenditures and regional impacts: 1. Due to retail margins, the total expenditures in my model are larger than the direct modeled effects. I've seen others add the input direct expenditures to the indirect and induced effects, and present that as the "total regional impact." Is that correct? 2. Some of my expenditures are on registration fees (to a state) and taxes (personal property and excise). Do these belong in the model? I would think registration fees belong but perhaps not the taxes? Thanks for any help
