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.

Italian data on majority foreign-owned firms come from ISTAT, the Italian statistical office, which has started to collect data on inward foreign affiliates for both manufacturing and services sectors in 2004. The survey on foreign-controlled enterprises in Italy (Inward FATS) is biannual, collecting information on the last two years. The response rate to the survey is 52% in terms of firms and 63% in terms of persons employed. After manual controls on non respondents, the response rate raises up to 80% in terms of person employed. For the moment, only data for 2001 and 2002 are available. Indirect foreign-controlled firms are included only in respect to majority control. The results are published on the ISTAT’s web site at http://www.istat.it/imprese/attivita/ .
