International Surveys: Foreign Direct Investment in the United States

BEA's surveys of foreign direct investment (FDI) in the United States collect information that is used to compile statistics on the scale of foreign-owned business activities in the United States and the effects these activities have on the U.S. economy. Business leaders look to these statistics to make informed decisions about hiring and investing. Policymakers and researchers use them to analyze the impacts of foreign direct investment on employment, wages, productivity and tax revenues.

All surveys of foreign direct investment in the United States are mandatory and confidential.
