Table 2. Use Table – Input by Industry and Final Use Category and Supply by Product Group
This table shows intermediate use by using industries (IOIG) and final use by final use categories of products (IOPG) at basic prices with indirect allocation of imports. See the Glossary for an explanation of indirect allocation of imports.
A row in the first quadrant of this table represents a product group. A row in the second quadrant represents either a primary input, Australian production, total uses, gross value added or gross domestic product. A column in this table represents either an industry group, a final use or total use category. In a balanced table, total use equals total supply. Hence the column that represents the total use (last column in the table) is termed total supply.
For example, the row representing the product group Other agriculture shows that $1,443m of domestic plus imported Other agriculture was used by the Sheep, grains, beef and dairy cattle industry, $935m of domestic plus imported Other agriculture was used by the Other agriculture industry and so on resulting in a total of $11,324m of domestic plus imported product being used intermediately by all the industries.
In the final use categories, $5,307m of domestic plus imported Other agriculture was used by the Household sector, $332m of domestic plus imported product was used to decrease Inventories and $917m of domestic plus imported product was used in Exports (including re–exports). In total $6,407m of domestic plus imported Other agriculture was used by all final use categories.
In summary $11,324m of domestic plus imported Other agriculture was used intermediately by industries and $6,407m of domestic plus imported product was used by final use categories resulting in a total use of $17,731m of this product. Therefore, total supply of this product should be $17,731m which is reflected in the last column of this table.
