When relying on IMPLAN data for labor income and employee compensation data, I am working on a dataset that where the construction workers will be compensated for 12 hour days (10 hours working + 2 hours paid travel). How does the model calculate labor income, and would this special case make the IMPLAN estimate inaccurate? Is there a way to best convert the employment numbers from the model to this special case payment schedule? Do the labor income numbers apply to a standard number of hours worked per week? In this case, it may be necessary for me to scale up the compensation from standard number to my known hours/week number. Thank you!
