    Hi James, 

    Great question, and you are exactly right, the 11% going to motor vehicle and parts wholesale industry does not include the value of the goods wholesaled. These good themselves, such as 3352 Other motor vehicle parts, 3347 Motor vehicle gasoline engines and engine parts, 3349 Motor vehicle transmission and power train parts, etc. are included as separate line items in the the spending pattern for the automobile manufacturing industry. About 12% of intermediate expenditures are allocated to Other motor vehicle parts, for example, and this includes just the value of the parts themselves.

    Thank you,
