Producers' and Purchasers' Prices

In the make and use tables, the values are presented in millions of dollars at producers' prices. Producers' prices include excise and sales taxes collected and remitted by producers' but exclude the markup on commodities that final users must pay in consuming goods and services. Final users pay the purchasers' price for goods and services, which is the producers' price plus the trade margins and transportation costs incurred in delivering the goods and services to final consumers.
