I am currently performing a jobs analysis on utility energy efficiency programs. For an example, a program swaps old refrigerators with new ones for low-income families. I have the total amount spent on new refrigerators, total amount spent on recycling of refrigerators, and the FTEs of all program-related workers. 1) I assumed the local purchasing percentage to reflect whether or not the good was manufactured within region. Instead does it represent only whether the good was purchased within region? 2) After running the program, do I simply add the relevant FTEs (say 12.5) back into the model results as direct jobs? Thank you very much for any insight provided.
