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 Financial Statistical Department of the Hungarian Central Statistical Office (HCSO). The annual corporation-tax declarations, the annual investment survey and the external trade data collection of FDI are the most important data sources. In Hungary, all enterprises with legal entity and unincorporated enterprises with turnover greater than USD 500 000 are required to submit a detailed corporation-tax declaration. This includes the value of the stock of foreign direct investment and its distribution by industrial sector, but does not provide any information on the country of origin. Therefore, since 1992 the HCSO has organised an annual survey on FDI. In 1997, the sample included 5 000 enterprises selected on the corporation-tax declarations, covering 88% of the total stocks of FDI. From 1999 onwards, the data of country of origin of inward foreign direct investment position is based on information collected by the National Bank of Hungary. This sample survey covers 1 500 enterprises operating by significant FDI amounting to 83% of total FDI calculated from the tax files. The results are published in Foreign Direct Investment in Hungary.
