Hi there I am working on an analysis where IMPLAN identifies the LPP for the sector as ~24% within the study area. Therefore, IMPLAN estimates that almost 75% of purchases for the sector would likely be from sources outside of the study area. I am wondering if it is possible to determine the backward linkages of a sector, regardless of study area, to determine what industries may be lacking/missing in the study area (for 75 percent of purchases to be outside the study area). Or, put another way, is it possible to get more detail on the non-local purchases? Is there a way to obtain a distribution of industry sectors for these purchases? Thank you, Julianne
