Hello, I am producing a report analyzing the impact of shopping center operations at two levels of geography: the suburban town and county where the shopping center is located. I have input jobs in the following categories: -329 Retail Stores - General Merchandise -324 Retail Stores - Food and Beverage -354 Montary Authorities and depository credit intermediation activities In my results, the direct jobs come out like this: my input: 400 Town-level result:370 County-level result: 355 I expected the number of direct jobs to be no lower than my input jobs. Also, I expected the county-level jobs to be greater than town-level jobs, as the town is wholly within the county. [b] Is there any logical explanation for this discrepancy, or must I have made an inputting error?[/b] The LPPs might explain the mechanics of why my numbers are off: -town level LPPs average about 93% -county-level LPPs average about 90% Any insight would be helpful - thanks!
