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.

For all variables, the data are provided by Statistics Denmark in the framework of the Eurostat FATS pilot study. For 1999 data, the statistics were produced on the basis of the three following sources: the register of foreign-owned enterprises held by the Danish Central Bank; Statistics Denmark’s business register; Annual Accounts Statistics, which provide a large part of the structural business statistics (SBS) data. The register provided by the Danish Central Bank only includes enterprises that have direct foreign investment of at least 10 DKK million. Having received the Central Bank register containing information on identification numbers and ownership, the register was aligned with Statistics Denmark’s business register for the object of checking identification numbers and identifying every enterprise’s grouping of activity.
