Hi all, i am a postgraduate student from Malaysia. Recently I have bought a set of IMPLAN data (Hawaii, Honolulu) because the study site is similar to the one i am doing now. For your information, I am doing a study in a small county in Malaysia, a coastal town, highly dependent on tourism activity (diving). I would like to calculate the total economic impact of tourism on local economy.However, I am not sure whether i can construct a model using IMPLAN withought using US data. I am curious whether i can construct my own output based on the variables (sectors) in IMPLAN by entering the value based on my own finding (expenditure) rather than using IMPLAN US data. I understand that IMPLAN is mainly for US study, but is there any studies conducted outside US using IMPLAN? Please assist me on this issue. Thank you.
