I have used Implan for a number of years to model impact of military spending on San Diego. I have always used the industry setup mode to input employment and payroll for the direct impact of Navy and other DoD employees here. This year I get a much larger impact on GRP than in the past. Did the GDP, GRP revisions (including counting expenditures on R&D as final output) change the input output coefficients significantly for the defense sector at least in our region? Thank you for your advice. (P.S, employment and total personal income effects not affected in a major way; only GRP). Lynn Reaser
