Historical Data | 1980-2008

BEA reinstated the Survey of New Foreign Direct Investment in the United States in 2014 after ending the series with survey year 2008 due to budget cuts. The reinstated survey now includes expansions in an effort to better capture greenfield investments. Because expansions were not included in the previous series, the current series (starting with 2014) and the previous series (ending in 2008) are not directly comparable.
