(2013), calculate in “Organizing the Global Value Chain”, Econometrica 81(6): 2127-2204, an index for the position occupied by each industry in the assembly line. For example, the petrochemical and copper industries are at the beginning of the assembly chain and therefore have low indices (0.21 and 0.23 respectively), while sectors closer to end-use such as automotive or furniture have higher values (0.99 each). The index is calculated for the manufacturing sector and excludes R&D.
