Abstract: This paper develops a method to consolidate national supply-use tables (SUTs) into a single supra-regional SUT. The method deals with mirror trade statistics problems, such as the different valuation of imports and exports, and it corrects for the double-counting of re-exports. To test the contribution of the various construction steps, the paper decomposes the EU value added that is embodied in the EU exports to third countries into seven components. When the national SUTs for the period 2000-2007 are used, neglecting intra-EU spillover and feedback effects between the 27 EU-members results in an underestimation of the embodied value added of 12-15%. Not consolidating the national tables leads to a further under-estimation of 11-16%. Both types of errors are substantial. With these underestimations removed, the exports to third countries still only explain around 11% of the EU27 GDP.
