Different methods for measuring rent (natural-resource) content have been proposed in studies of the primary-input content of trade. In this paper these methods are applied to obtain different industry-level estimates of the primary-input contents and the primary-input intensities of Argentina's exports of manufactures. The paper then explores the extent to which the choice of method affects these results, as well as the classification and ranking of activities according to primary-input intensities, and Heckscher-Ohlin tests.
