Hi, We are trying to do an analysis modeling the economic impact of short-term rentals in our economy. We have all the inputs gathered (expenditures on lodgings and expenditures on non-lodging itmes). For total rents it is an annual figure comprised of the GROSS rents collected by owners of short-term rentals. We are trying to think through the best category/way to think about the short-term rental income. Model it as an increase as income in Private Household (IMPLAN 517); Other accommodations (Implan 500?) Something else? Something else after we further massaging the number? The number derived by simply putting in the number into Private households (517) produced fairly nonsensical numbers. Category 500 has lots of things that are significantly different than privately owned and managed vacation homes but produced an number which made more sense. Thanks in advance for suggestions.
