I am getting some big differences in induced jobs associated with a $10 M household income change between two adjacent counties for which I've run identical analyses (42 jobs vs. 26 induced jobs for the 100-150k HH income group). Comparing the Social Account Matrices for the two counties, it appears the difference is driven primarily by large differences in household savings rate (again for HHs with same income). The attached file shows the comparison. I'd appreciate any insight on what might explain such a large difference in savings rate (this has a very large impact on the analyses we are running!). Also any comments or insight on why savings rates are so high particularly for one of the counties at approx. 44% of gross income would also be helpful. Thank you! David [attachment:1]AC v.
