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 Czech Statistical Office. For all variables except R&D expenditure and Number of researchers, they are extracted from the annual structural survey (for non-financial enterprises) and from the annual survey in the financial sector. No special survey on enterprises with foreign participation is conducted, they are identified in the Business Register. The information on the share of foreign participation is updated by the Czech National Bank. Non-financial firms with 100 employees or more are surveyed exhaustively, smaller firms are surveyed by sample. The method for estimating non-responses is different between the time periods 1997-99, 2000-01 and 2002-04. The data in this publication refer to majority foreign-owned enterprises, which have a foreign capital share of more than 50%.
