Strategy used to avoid double counting flows. (A) Four chunks matching to the same country-level chain (A|B) originated from the same GCOC (A 1|A 2|B 1|B 2). Companies present in the original chain but not in the chunk are depicted in gray. The upstream of the chunks is underlined. B 1 corresponds to the first owner in country B. (B,C) Finding conduits using overlapping chains. A,B,C,D and E are individual countries. (B) Conduits would be counted only once after splitting the chain in chunks of size three and counting all the fragments. (C) Conduits would be double counted if the chain is split in chunks of size four.
