Hi Implan, I have a few questions about multipliers. 1) How does Implan calculate type SAM multipliers by default? I think that type I multipliers are calculated as inv(I-A) where A is the square matrix of technical coefficients for the 440 Implan industries. Is this correct? Which industries, institutions, and factors are included in the matrix A that is used to calculate type SAM multipliers? 2) How does Implan get employment from output? From what I've read, it sounds like Implan uses the study area data to calculate (employment/output) for a given industry, and multiplies that ratio by direct output to get direct employment. However, when I check this, it appears not to be the case. Thanks in advance for your help. Stephen
