I am doing a basic impact study to determine the total economic impacts of an additional number of jobs added within a particular industry. I am using industry change and entering in a specific employment figure. All of the jobs will be within the study area so I chose 100% LPP. I know that when I run the model, IMPLAN will calculate the impacts removing the leakages (due to imports from supplier purchases, etc.) based on RPCs. So, the final total output and job impacts will be the total impacts in the study area region. First, this is correct, right? If not, please clarify. Second, I want to find out what the total amount of the leakages are (which are not considered in the impact run). I think it is basically found under Social Accounts/Balance Sheets/Industry Balance Sheet/Commodity Demand after entering in the desired industry sector; however, I am not sure exactly how to get a final total leakage amount in dollars for output. Can you please provide some assistance? Thank you.
