Hello, I am calculating the impact of immigrant consumer spending on a metro economy. I calculated household income from ACS PUMS data and inputted these values into Implan as a Household Income Change, apportioning income to the nine income categories. Since a household income change removes income taxes and savings, can I assume that what is left (i.e. what the impact is calculated on) is disposable income? And should the LPP value be left at 100%, since all income is received within the metro area? Results are reported for induced only (which I expected). How would I go about conducting indirect impacts for consumer expenditures using a household income change, or do I need to begin from scratch and use another method to get both indirect and induced for consumer spending?
