Doug, Thank you for your help in the past, but I have one more question as I compile my final report. Basically the sum of the total effects of the individual scenarios, differs from the total effects of the "total" scenario I created which incorporates all of the activities broken out in various other scenarios. Some background, to clarify. I conducted a contribution analysis of agriculture within a state, and as part of my objectives I am providing a break down of results between the various components of agriculture, for example crop processing and livestock processing. So I created multiple activities broken down into each desired , in this case one for each type of processing. I created a scenario for each and a "processing" scenario which captured both the activities. However the total effects from the processing scenario do not equal the sum of the individual scenarios, despite including the same activities. The difference lies within the induced and indirect effects. I was hoping you had some intuition as to what type of error would cause this result. Thank You
