Table 5. Industry by Industry Flow Table (Direct Allocation of Imports)
This table shows the allocation of Australian produced industry outputs to industries and to all final use categories. This table is similar to Table 2, however it has industry by industry dimensions and imports are treated differently in comparison. In this table imports are directly allocated meaning they are allocated to the industries which use them and are included with the primary inputs to these industries in deriving the total production. With this method the intermediate and final use contain only the use of the domestic production and so the intermediate use matrix does not reflect the full input structure of industries.
A row in Quadrants 1 and 2, or a column in Quadrants 1 and 3 of this table represents an industry group. A row in Quadrants 3 and 4 represents a primary input, Australian production or value added. A column in Quadrants 2 and 4 represents a final use category.
For example, the row representing the industry group Other agriculture shows that $1,524m of output from the industry Other agriculture was used by the Sheep, grains, beef and dairy cattle industry, $954m of output from this industry was used by the Other agriculture industry and so on resulting in a total of $11,064m of output produced by the Other agriculture industry being used by all industries intermediately.
In the final use categories, $5,034m of output produced by the Other agriculture industry was used by the Household sector, $4m was used by the Government sector and so on resulting in a total of $6,392m of output from the Other agriculture industry being used by all final use categories.
