Hello, There is are two new sectors coming to the region in 2016. Two new companies are to be located in one county but this county (Limestone County) does not have those sectors (Sector 367 and Sector 358). However, an adjacent county (Madison County) has both sectors. Since the companies will be located at the border of both counties (but owned by the same city), I am thinking of using the data from the adjacent county (Madison) to change the study area data of the county in which the company will be located (Limestone). My question is what employment numbers do I use to set up/change the study area. The proposed employment numbers by the company (which means I will have to vary the data for all other inputs like Employee compensation, proprietor income, other property Type income etc) or the employment that already exists in the madison county? The new companies that are going to be located here, are also proposing an increase in employment over the next few years. I only have proposed employment and average employee compensation data for these companies. Of course this will be an MRIO study for both counties including 6 other counties. So I do not want to double count any employment numbers. How should I set up the sector? Thank you in advance
