Ownership-based current account
The ownership-based framework is a supplement to the international transactions accounts that presents current account statistics combining cross-border trade with the net receipts of affiliates of multinational companies. Beginning with statistics for 2007, the detailed presentation fully incorporates data for bank affiliates.
The following statistics are supplemental detail that in most cases were provided in response to special requests. BEA cannot fulfill such requests in many cases, but when we are able to fulfill them, we provide equal access to the information by posting it in this section.
