I am trying to determine how best to estimate the changes to employment multipliers that would arise if an industry were zeroed out. Specifically, I want to know the extent to which customers of a particular aluminum smelter would have to purchase their aluminum from outside of the region if the smelter were to shut down. I think one way to do this would be to zero out IMPLAN sector 221 and then examine the industry multipliers in which these customer companies are located. The problem is that I don't know of an easy/quick way to determine which sectors will see a decrease in their employment multipliers if sector 221 is eliminated. Is there a way you could step me through this process and show me how to find these sectors? Thank you!
