Another one.. When creating a contribution study, I tend to run payroll separate from non-payroll. I run payroll as a labor income change. Since the payroll expense itself doesn't show up in IMPLAN's output, I discuss it as an increase in local wealth but omit it from the Total Effects (I keep the induced effects of payroll in, though). Some colleagues tell me I should add it back in as a direct effect. Is there an easy answer? Would it be appropriate to add payroll expense to the direct output numbers? I just want to make sure I'm using correct terms. Thanks
