Hello, I have a question related to the indirect effect from “State/Local Gov’t Education” results. It would be of immense help if you could give shed some light on this. It’s very simple, I set up a new activity from the “Institution Spending Pattern” option, chose “State/Local Govt Education” (we are doing a study on the impact of community colleges on the economy of Orange County), then I input the operating budget of the school district into the “Activity Level” $160,945,600. From here I get results of 2,112 for employment (Direct Effect) and 3.1 (Indirect Effect). Can you please tell me why my indirect effect for employment is so low compared to the direct effect? Am I doing something wrong? I greatly appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks
