Measuring Globalisation: Activities of Multinationals 2007, Volume I, Manufacturing Sector

This first volume of a two-volume publication presents detailed data on the industrial activity of multinationals in OECD countries. In an era of globalisation, these data highlight the increasing importance of multinationals in the economies of host countries. Time series cover 23 countries for the period 2000-2004.  This volume provides data for the manufacturing sector covering 18 variables including production, employment, investment, research and trade. Volume II provides similar data for services. These data provide a measure of the impact of foreign direct investment on the economies of the OECD countries. From this standpoint, they provide a vital backup for data on direct investment flows.This publication includes StatLinks, URLs linking to Excel® spreadsheets containing the underlying data.

The data are prepared by the Irish Central Statistics Office (CSO) for all variables except R&D expenditure. The CSO conducts an annual survey on industrial production which covers separately companies which employ at least three persons and where 50% or more of the share capital is held by non-Irish residents. The local unit is the basic unit used in this survey. The data are published annually in Census of Industrial Production.
