4.1 The values of commodity flows, for both domestic supply and imports, were allocated to stages based on an analysis of detailed 1989–90 Input-Output tables. Three stages of production have been adopted.

4.2 The table below indicates that Stage 1 goods represent about 15% of the Australian output of goods and merchandise imports covered by the SOP index model, while Stage 2 and Stage 3 goods account for 36% and 49% respectively. The increasing values of Stage 1, 2 and 3 goods respectively reflect the impact of the value added process as goods are used along the production chain.
