Hello, I am working on an economic impact analysis of a Government Center that will house local (County) government employees. Our study seeks to quantify the total impacts to the economy of a small City where the center will be built. We know how many employees will occupy the center, and have entered this number as an event using the "Employment and Payroll of Local Government, Non-Education" sector (#533). When analyzing this scenario through IMPLAN, the results show direct impacts and induced impacts, but indirect impacts are zero. Is this zero a valid result, or is there some type of error? If this result is valid, what is the rationale for having no indirect impacts?
