Hello, my research team is conducting a study for the mining industry in our area. We are using survey data from several mines, one of which is idle. This mine gave us the number of current employees as well as employee compensation but not operation expenditures. We started by attempting an industry change analysis but they have no industry sales or proprietor income at the moment. If we override the software's estimation by entering in $0, the estimated output is equivalent to $0. However, it should be equal to the value-added. It seems when we override the estimation provided by implan, the natural formula no longer applies. We then considered calculating a labor income change by adding the direct effects that were provided but are unsure of what that would look like?
