MRIO Questions 1. Should the activity and event value be entered in the core region prior to or after all the models are linked? 2.Suppose we create a study area consisting of three counties say, Hoke, Harnett and Cumberland (the core county where the reduction in troops would occur) and run an impact of 3,000 reduction in soldiers, why is the economic impact larger in single region analysis than under MRIO analysis? Should it not be just the reverse considering MRIO captures all the leakages? 3. Suppose the expectation is to report the economic impact separately by each county, how do we separate the impact on each county from analysis of a single region which includes the three counties. Can we apportion the impact by the county's share in the regional GDP. 4 If the counties are located within 30 miles, does it make any sense in using MRIO analysis? why not combine all three counties in one region and run impact as a single region.
