    There is a difference between looking at a single industry's production function. A single industry has intermediate purchases plus value added which equals output. The intermediate purchases are actually the first round of the indirect effect so you would not want to display that as a separate column. The impacts are the results of rounds of purchases by businesses and consumers. At each turn there is leakage of dollars due to imports. A graphic showing that spending does help describe that. The bottom line is that they are not supposed to add up.

    Do you have a graphic that I might be able to use? Just curious - how do other IMPLAN users present simplified results to their clients. Do you have a standard table format with accompanying text?

    We don't have a standard format yet but are planning on it. I've attached a graphic showing the impact calculation process.

    Thank you Scott - when you do develop a format could you include me on your list to receive the info?
