    Note:  * Share represents industry gross value added as a proportion of Gross State/Domestic Product. Gross value added is the value of output at basic prices minus the value of intermediate consumption at purchasers' prices. The shares presented here are based on chain volume measures (i.e. real) of gross value added.
              ^ Sum of individual components does not add up to 100 per cent as total Gross State/Domestic Product includes gross value added associated with ownership of dwellings, taxes less subsidies on products, and statistical discrepancy (all not shown).
