Total commodity value is $546,967,706,426 (1989-1991 international dollars, 1998 production).

Normalized to sum to one by dividing each instance of a primary center for a crop by the number of primary centers for that crop (i.e., for a given crop, the weight assigned to a primary center falls as the number of primary centers increases). Imposing this normalization provides the measure with a cardinal interpretation.
