42 Gross Product of U.S. Multinational Companies, 1977–91 (PDF)

The share of production of U.S. multinational companies (MNC’s) that originates in the United States has increased modestly since 1977. Among MNC’s in manufacturing, however, the foreign share of production has increased; this shift toward foreign operations has been concentrated in countries with relatively high wage rates, suggesting that wage rates are not the dominant factor in determining the location of manufacturing production.

Current Business Statistics. As this issue of the SURVEYwent to the printer, BEA received approval to reprogram selected resources into areas that are primary to its mission of preparing economic accounts. One result of this reprogramming is that BEA will discontinue compiling and publishing the "Current Business Statistics" (S-pages) section of the SURVEY. The March 1994 SURVEY will be the last issue containing this section. BEA series that are presently published in the S-pages will be retained elsewhere in the SURVEY. BEA will provide a listing of sources for the S-page series, including addresses and telephone numbers, in the March and April issues.
