    Hi Andrew! Output deflators are indeed applied to the coefficients in spending patterns - they are applied behind-the-scenes and don't show up by way of changed Event values. However, you can prove it to yourself by setting the LPPs to 100% and then clicking the "Preview" button - there you will see the deflated values and you will notice that the Sum of Event Values is no longer 1.00.

    Thank you for the reply. My analysis uses an Institutional Spending Pattern model looking at household spending out through 2045. IMPLAN event years only go out to 2030. How can I apply an event year after 2030 in this model? Thanks, Andrew

    Hello, Per your proposed methodology discussed previously, we concur a nd would recommend deflating your 2045 Activity Level value to 2013 and then setting the Event Year to 2013.
