Method (how did they do it)

“We used the 2005 Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) annual input-output accounts (www.bea.gov/industry/index.htm#annual) to determine how employment in each industry involved in a particular strategy would be affected assuming a $1 million increase in investment. Specifically, we used BEA input-output tables at the 65-industry level of detail to determine how output across these industries would change given an increase in investment in a particular clean-energy strategy. We then used BEA Gross-Domestic-Product-by-Industry Accounts data (www.bea.gov/industry/gpotables/gpo_list.cfm?anon=70418&registered=0) to derive employment multipliers for each industry, i.e., the factor by which an industry’s employment would change given a change in output. We used the employment multipliers to determine the total change in employment across the 65 industries given a $1 million increase in investment in a particular clean-energy strategy, as well as what each industry’s share of this total employment increase would be. We then identified which industries would experience the largest shares of the overall employment increase required to meet the needs of the increased investment in a particular clean-energy strategy. This list of “most affected” industries guided our selection of occupations. ”
