Hi, I have a few questions regarding several IMPLAN analyses I am running: [ol] [li]Does Value Added attempt to distinguish between Other Property Type Income (“OPTI”) that would be captured by people and companies in the study area rather than by entities located outside the study area? For example, would IMPLAN’s estimate of value added have adjustments that were meant to exclude from value added in the study area the profits earned at a Costco store in located in New York state (since Costco is incorporated elsewhere)? If IMPLAN accounts for OPTI captured by entities elsewhere, what is the basis by which it does this for zip-code level analyses?[/li] [li]The forum Q&A shown at the link below states that that IMPLAN is currently based on a regional net commuting rate at this time. I wanted to confirm that this is still the case and that commuting rates in 2013 data are still based on county-level journey-to-work commuting patterns, and does not utilize zip-code commuting data. Is this correct? http://test.implan.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=80&id=17095&Itemid=35[/li] [li]Are there any documents you would recommend reading that would describe the best way to understand the IxC Social Accounting Matrix?[/li] Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you. [/ol]
