I am working on an economic impact project at the county level and IMPLAN is predicting very high indirect spending amounts. We have a lot of data from our client and know what industries their indirect spending occurs. IMPLAN predicts some large indirect expenditures in categories that we do not believe are possible in our county. This leads me to question how IMPLAN determines spending in each jurisiction? Is spending based on actual businesses located within the county or perhaps based on a national or statewide average? Is there a reason why we would see spending in an industry category that we know does not exist in the County? Thank You
