I am trying to understand a detail on setting up my model in IMPLAN. If I am buying something that is largely manufactured (say broadcast and wireless communications equipment, which is 80 percent overseas mfg) overseas and I am using the US national model, do I have to adjust the direct spending amount for the purchase downward by the 80 percent to reflect the fact that the main producers or overseas? Or is this somehow accounted for in the model (e.g. embedded in the multipliers included in the 305 category? Thanks for any insights you can offer.
