Hi, I have a relative simple question, I think. I know that the event year represents the year that changes in final demand occur. But, I have also read in the forum that the event year should correspond to the dollar-year in which the event vlaues are measured. I have scenario where I have have an IMPLAN dataset for 2012. For the project that I am analyzing, the event is expected to occur in 2017, but the estimates of the event are in 2014 dollars (they were not inflated to 2017). So, should the event year be 2014 or 2017? My guess is that it should be 2014, but just need to be sure. thank you for your assistance.
