43 Differences in Foreign-Owned U.S. Manufacturing Establishments by Country of Owner (PDF)

The U.S. manufacturing establishments of each of the six major investing countries—Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom—tend to be much larger, pay higher wages, and be more productive than U.S.-owned establishments. These tendencies vary by country of owner, partly reflecting differences in the distribution of establishments by industry and partly reflecting differences within the same industries. These findings are based on an analysis of data for 1991 that were derived by linking BEA enterprise-level data on foreign direct investment in the United States with establishment-level data from the Census Bureau’s annual survey of manufactures.
