    Hi Andrew. Part of Sector 491's Industry's Spending Pattern is Advertising, public relations and related Services at 6.244% Gross Absorption. You can look at the Intermediate Expenditures that make up sector 491: Explore> Social Accounts> Balance Sheet (Tab), and select View By: Industry Balance Sheet and the Commodity Demand tab. You can then sort by Gross Absorption, by clicking on Gross Absorption to sort from highest to lowest. Construction is included in the spending pattern however this is maintenance and repair, Gross Absorption .229%. New construction will not be included because it is final demand and therefore not part of continual, annual operating expenses. If you have the new construction values, you can model this separately in a new Activity. I realize the Gross Absorption numbers I provided may not match yours, as we are using different regions. However it is just to give you an idea that this type of value exists in the software. Thanks!

    Hi Andrew, I apologize for the delay on our response. The Institutions included in the standard build (Households, Employment Compensation and Proprietor Income) are the standard Institutions for the definition of a SAM Multiplier, and thus are the recommended Multiplier specification. Institutions like the ones left unchecked generally don’t produce goods and services that are sold for profits and typically cannot be assumed to have a reciprocal relationship between local money in and local money spent as Industries and the default Institutions. When all of the boxes are checked, your impact will be run through all Institutions, which will artificially inflate your Multipliers, and is not recommended. However when you uncheck an Institution, this will decrease your Induced impact. We recommend that you leave all of the default Institutions checked. This article will provide additional information on the rare occasions when it makes sense to include other Institutions in the Multiplier specifications.https://implan.com/index.php?view=download&alias=225-elements-of-the-implan-sam-v3-update&category_slug=version-three-files&option=com_docman&Itemid=1480 Thanks!
