I'm doing a contribution analysis on a steel plant. It sends a significant portion of its output to other facilities owned by the same corporation. I was wondering how you guys handle that when building the IMPLAN datasets. My contacts could easily give me sales value for product shipped to third parties, and cost data on intra-company transfers, but I'm a bit confused about whether or not I should try to value the intra-company shipments as if they were third party (e.g. adding profit margin). Or is it simply that Other Property Type Income (& value added) is just lower because of those type of transactions? Thanks!
