I do have a simple question. What actually does study area value represent, direct effect or total effect? If I am asked to interpret study area data, is it correct if I call it total effect? I am saying this because when you look at scenario result in the detail results section (after running impact analysis for the single sector as for example sector 15) it tends to match with study area data when you add direct, indirect and induced for a sector (say sector 15). I do acknowledge that total effect of sector 15 is the sum of direct, indirect, and induced impact on other secondary industry.
