Hello there, I’m working on calculating the economic impact of a construction phase of a manufacturing plant. I know that all the money of the first round of spending (direct) have been spent in local businesses/contractors, but I don’t have any info on their suppliers (second round, indirect) or where their employees spend their money (induced). Can I still set my LPP to 100% or do I need to use the SAM setting? In general, if I have information on the location of the first round of spending, can I use LPP 100%? And follow-up question, if you know that all the workers of the businesses receiving the first round of spending are residents of the study area, how do you make sure that the induced effect reflects that?
