I was trying to figure out how to interpret it and I think I need help. If we take employment type SAM multiplier equal to 1.05, does it mean that one million of output (or investment) generates additional 0.05 jobs in the economy (in multipliers description at the website it says "Employment: provides Employment Multipliers per million dollars of Output"). What are effects in this case? In multipliers section there is a link to additional information on effects vs multipliers and it doesn't work. Also in the section of the project results, we see direct, indirect, induced effects and total effect. As I understand, multiplier in this case=total effect/direct effect. For example, total effect is 2.5, direct effect is 1, does it mean that 1 million dollars invested in the project will bring additional 1.5 jobs? or 2.5 jobs?
