    Hi Ernesto, You are absolutely correct. The Event Year needs to match the value or purchasing power of the dollars, so if the values of the expenditures are 2014 dollar values that should be your Event Year. You can adjust Dollar Year for View to 2017 if you want to see the impacts in the year's dollar values. The primary purpose of the Event Year field is to adjust between the value of the dollar entered into Industry Sales and the dollar year of the Multipliers. So as a further example if you were to find a survey conducted in 2003 and you wanted to use it to see what a comparable project would look like today you would set your Event Year to 2003 and the Dollar Year for View to 2014. Hopefully this helps --Implan Support Staff
