Public debate of economic globalisation often discusses the impact of foreign owned multinational enterprises on economic activity within host economies. Unfortunately, while traditional balance of payments statistics provide data on the level of foreign investment in Australia in terms of both debt and equity, they do not compile statistics on indicators of economic activity such as employment, business income, expenses, etc.

The ABS undertook a study examining the feasibility of synthesizing these data by matching data from the regular Economic Activity Survey with data from the Survey of International Investment and information sourced from internet searches. This Information Paper summarises the results of this experimental exercise.
