Hello, I am doing a study for a single company and what to determine the effect it has on the economy. The company does not produce anything in the country, except that they pay dividends, and buy raw materials in the U.S. which are then exported. I know the NAICS / Implan codes for the industry they buy goods from, and the value ($) of those purchases. I also know the dividend amounts they pay. I am new to Implan, so I have a few questions I wanted to ask: 1. Is there a way I can enter those dividend payments, in order to know the effect they have on the economy? If so, where/how can I do that? 1a. How can I get the specific impact of dividends? I understand that dividends are shown together with other property income. 2. Where in IMPLAN can I modify household income? 3. Where can I enter the amount of money this company spends in raw materials, to be able to know how the economic effects of this? By entering this amount, will IMPLAN estimate other variables such as direct labor/employment? 4. If I decide to model identical activities for a number of states and congressional districts, is there a way to save those activities, so that I do not need to enter them manually (one by one) for each of the models I am running? Thanks in advance for the help! Ramon
