Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
1) The purpose of this question is to determine from where the inputs for production are obtained and purchased.
The calculation is done as a percent of all purchases of supplies and inputs purchased by the establishment for the fiscal year.
Inputs are materials that go through a mechanical, physical, or chemical transformation that will ultimately make up some portion of the final good produced. Lumber in a furniture factory is a good example of an input.
Supplies are materials or products that are used, expended, consumed, but will not comprise the final good produced. Pencils and writing paper are good examples of a supply.
2) INTERVIEWER: CHECK THAT TOTAL SUMS TO 100%
