4) The data on intermediate output are known only for the aggregate series (not for individual branches) and they are not very reliable, because it was impossible to fully eliminate the impact of turnover tax. Nevertheless, it may be interesting to mention that the share of intermediate product in the total output - both measured in current prices - had been increasing in the years 1953 -1955 but it has: remained constant after 1966. Earlier data are not available. Cf. Narkhoz 62, p.64, Narkhoz 70, pp.60, 534, Vainshtein(69), p.111.
