Regional Patterns in the Location of Foreign-Owned U.S. Manufacturing Establishments, [From the May 1999 SURVEY OF CURRENT BUSINESS]

"A new data set on foreign-owned establishments supports an analysis of regional patterns of foreign direct investment in the United States (FDIUS) that uses comprehensive establishment data and is based on geographic areas that are defined on an economic basis... A key feature... is the separate identification of... "greenfield," establishments. Greenfield establishments are of particular interest in the analysis of FDIUS because they indicate explicit locational choices by the foreign owners at the time of the investment.

... Questions that can be addressed... are the following: How do the regional patterns in the location of foreign-owned U.S. manufacturing establishments compare with those of U.S.-owned manufacturing establishments? How do these patterns compare for greenfield establishments? How does the location of foreign-owned greenfield establishments compare with the location of existing establishments that are acquired by foreigners? To what extent does the location of foreign-owned greenfield establishments, and its relation to the location of prior investments, vary by country of owner?"
