Ballast hose diameter

I am extending the ballast hose in my rear lockers and need to identify the hose diameter to order more to match what I have. Is 1" hose measured one inch outside diameter?

The hose commonly used on boats is measured by ID. The 3 most commonly used ballast ID's are .75, 1.0 and 1.125 inch.
