Primary secondary tertiary what?[edit]

As far as I can tell this is either random or personal preference. Soap industry why isn't it tertiary? -- it's for healthcare -- heck it should be a fourth level as it supports a third level. I like gem cutting, why is it a tertiary? Why isn't health care a primary. Crafting -- hey why bother with it? I'll sell food, furniture, secondary quality weapons, and junk I got from killing humans/kobolds.

It isn't about what industry is more important. Primary means it extracts resources. Secondary means that all inputs are Primary industries, Tertiary means it has secondary industries as inputs (maybe?). It answers the question, "Does this industry extract raw materials?" and if not, "How many degrees of separation are there?". Real world explanation here. --Droid 19:04, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Primary extracts resources, secondary uses resources, tertiary uses people. Easy. 07:31, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
An easier explanation. Farmer grows cows, cows get turned into burgers, burgers are served at a Maccas. Primary Secondary Tertiary.Dsarker 07:34, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
