I'm looking at the economic impact of beer wholesalers on the craft beer industry. My question is if I should enter the industry sales as Gross Retail Sales or Gross Retail Margin (I have data on both). I end up with fairly different outcomes depending on the approach. My guess is this is due to the very different margins beer wholesalers have versus typical wholesalers. Given this divergence, which approach will be more accurate?
