Purpose
To provide statistics on Australia's international investment activity.

Description
This survey collects information about investment activity into and out of Australia. It measures:

  • the levels (stock) of foreign financial assets and foreign liabilities of residents;
  • capital transactions (investment flows) resulting in increases and decreases in the levels of these assets and liabilities;
  • other changes in the levels of these assets and liabilities; and
  • income accrued on these assets and liabilities.

Data are collected by mail questionnaire sent to about 900 enterprise groups which have significant international investment activity. The information from this survey serves as input to the quarterly publication Balance of Payments and International Investment Position, Australia (cat. no. 5302.0).
