    Hi Emily! Thank you for your forum post. Industry Change will capture 4 components: Industry Sales (Gross Revenue/ Total Value of Production), Employment, Employee Compensation and Proprietor Income. The IMPLAN Sectors are the operating Sectors, or what it takes to operate a facility due to an increase in production. It sounds as if you have the Employee Compensation value with your salary and benefit expense value. IMPLAN's definition of Employee Compensation is a fully loaded payroll value. Is your Revenue value the Gross Revenue / Total Output? If so, then that is another input value that can be entered in the Model in the Industry Sales field. There is an order of operations, I recommend that you enter the Industry Sales value first > Select Tab > then enter your Employee Compensation value by over-riding IMPLAN's estimates. If you could provide me with some additional information about your study; I can provide you with a better direction of how to setup this analysis. Thanks!

    Thank you! You are correct that we have Employee Compensation which is the salary&benefits expense. And the revenue figures we have are gross sales/total production value. So I see where those would be entered into the Industry Change. I'm still not clear where I can enter general operating expenses (supplies, building&occupancy, etc)? Thank you, Emily

    Hi Emily! Thank you for the confirmation. The Sector that you select in your Industry Change Activity, will contain (in the background) all of the Inputs or Intermediate Expenditures, needed for that Sector to makes it production. You can see this list of Expenditures for each Sector: * Model Overview -> Social Accounts -> Balance Sheets -> Industry Balance Sheets -> Select your Sector -> Commodity Demand Tab* If you would like to customize your own list of expenditures then you can use this type of analysis: The Basics of Analysis By Parts: http://support.implan.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&layout=edit&id=452 Using an Imported Industry Spending Pattern: http://support.implan.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&layout=edit&id=388 Recorded Demo on Analysis By Parts (Using Pro Version): https://youtu.be/ClqdO9-wqgU
