I am doing an analysis on the impact of hospital on a county and on the seven county region, with and without some additional sales to the hospital. All I have is the employment and the wages, the percentage of local employment for both the with and without additional sales. LPC is 78% for the county and about 3% for other inputs. Industry out put is about $20 million. When I do the county only analysis the with and without it make sense but when I jump to the regional analysis and would be what I would expect using an unadjusted model. When I do the region I get a much larger impact on that one facility in terms of output with the same labor and wage imputs jumps to about $32 million. I do have a local LCP that jumps to a 87% for labor and assumed to jump to 6% for other purchases. There are larger hospitals in the region and two of the additional counties in the 4 county region are very close to a major metro area. I suspect that when I add those two counties I have actually gone beyond the practical area definition for the economic impacts. Is there a reason for what I think is a strange result? Attached are the unadjusted summary files.
