Hi there I am modeling direct employment as an industry change in Sector 42 (Electric Power Generation - Fossil Fuel). I am running an MRIO analysis looking at the county and NJ state level as well as NYC. The indirect employment output for NYC is unusually high--showing almost four times as much employment compared to the direct employment input in NJ. Based on the detailed results, these indirect jobs in NYC are mostly associated with proprietors, of which most proprietor income is associated with Sector 20 extraction of natural gas and crude petroleum. Does this mean that IMPLAN is assuming extraction of natural gas in NYC? Could this be employment associated with financial markets and trading? Is there any information explaining why the indirect in NYC would be so high? Thank you,
